Puppet Theatre at the Crossroads: O prvom rozprávkarovi (About the First Storyteller)

An original, imaginative fairy tale that unfolds when you close your eyes. An acoustic theatre production designed for blind, visually impaired, and sighted children aged 5 and above.

A theatrical rendition of a Chinese folk tale, suitable for children aged 5 and older, regardless of visual ability. It tells the story of a blind boy, cast out from a principality by his father (a prince) due to his visual impairment, and nurtured by wild animals in the forest. This is a pilot project in the field of Slovak puppet theatre.

"About the First Storyteller" is an original project by the Puppet Theatre at the Crossroads, incorporating elements of performance with a focus on the acoustic component. Its aim is to engage equally with blind, visually impaired, and sighted audiences by presenting a captivating narrative based on auditory stimuli and employing various, often unconventional, props and scenery. Sighted children will enjoy an equally enriching experience, albeit from a different perspective, as they witness the performers craft this unique acoustic atmosphere, often in a playful manner that resonates with the interests of today's youth. This performance adds an enriching oriental flavour to the theatre's repertoire.
