The Incredible Adventures of Baron Munchausen
May 3 - May 20
A one actor kids performance using video, animation, puppets and shadow theatre techniques to tell the story of Baron Munchausen’s incredible adventures. Viewers can take part in the story telling by choosing where to sail with the baron – North or South, and it will affect the ending.
This family-friendly play is a multimedia retelling of the classic tale of Baron Munchausen–a fictional figure prone to fabricating larger-than-life stories from his adventure-filled life.
Who is Munchausen – “phony baron” or “the most truthful person on earth”? Where is the line between truth and fiction? But is it really that important when you set off on a journey with the most resourceful, courageous and witty traveler who can even take you to the moon!
You’ll need to bring your imagination with you, or you won’t be able to see the scary wolf that the baron faced in the snowy Canadian fields, the African lion or the northern bear. Moreover, the baron won’t be able to get to the moon without your help.
The performance uses video and animation, as well as shadow theatre techniques. Little travellers can choose for themselves where to sail with the baron – North or South, and it will affect the story.
