A musical performance based on African fairy tales and legends. Every year, residents of one village gather around the campfire, sing, dance, put on animal masks, remember and act out the story of how, in immemorial times, the clever Monkey saved the savannah inhabitants from the wrath of the Sea Dragon.
The performance takes place in a small hall, the audience sits next to the stage and can feel like participants in all the events: here the flood is moving to Africa, and King Leo convenes his subjects to hear their suggestions. The ostrich offers different ways of escape, Antelope believes that only beauty and art will save the world, Zebra believes that it is necessary to look at troubles philosophically, and a white stripe will follow the black stripe. And only the Monkey decides to act and is sent to the mysterious underwater kingdom, inhabited by luminous jellyfish, dark sharks, colorful fish, lobster and a real dragon.
By the way: the inhabitants of the sea are puppets, and the dragon is a real cane doll, made according to old Japanese drawings.
