Puppet theatre: Grajsko lutkovno gledalisce Sevnica | Slovenia

The ugly Duckling

A ducks mother broods seven eggs – one of them is bigger than the others. After hatching all little ducklings develop quite rapidly, only the seventh duckling struggles in finding its path. The clumsy ugly duckling is being laughed at by its brothers and sister as it is different. It runs away and passes several adventures – always aiming at finding its place in life.

The Slovenian group Grajsko lutkovno gledališče Sevnica is specialised in puppet theatre. For many years the group has been participating in the world’s puppet day festival as well as in the summer plays in Croatia. The artists design their puppets themselves, give workshops and direct plays for other puppet theatre groups.
