Theater Kuckucksheim (DE)
Oh, wie schön ist Panama
“When you have a friend, there’s nothing to be afraid of!”
“Oh, wie schön ist Panama” (The Trip to Panama) is a story about friendship, itchy feet and finding your place. The little bear and the little tiger are best friends. And they are not afraid of anything because together they are fabulously strong. They live happily in their house by the river, until one day, bear fishes a box out of the river labelled “Panama”, which smells deliciously of bananas. Panama? Where on earth is Panama? Seized by wanderlust, the two friends set off on a great adventure.With music composed by Dietmar Staskowiak, played by a small orchestra, and lovingly designed puppets by Dorothee Löffler, Theater Kuckucksheim stages Janosch’s classic children’s book with a lot of tenderness, warmth, wit and emotion for the whole family.
Theater Kuckucksheim from Heppstädt has been a guest of the international figuren.theater.festival for many years with its characteristic productions of drama, puppetry, music and song. In addition to plays for young audiences, it has become a tradition that the latest production for adults also premieres during the festival.
