Maša Jazbec and Andrej Fon: CECILIA AND THE DRAGON, based on the book by Lawrence Schimel
interactive puppet – play performance for children
Have you ever met a real dragon or fantasised about how to lure one with all sorts of tricks? The heroine Cecilia doesn’t hesitate and sets off on an adventure as a fearless knight, where she confronts and tricks the dragon. The cartoon on which the show is inspired breaks down stereotypical divisions between male and female roles in a direct, engaging way. Knights become female knights, bloodthirsty dragons become blunt-headed lizards, and formerly helpless victims are now adventurous girls who try to meet dragons by any means necessary.
