THE FAIRY TRIPTICH
There once lived a plump Great-Grandfather ... who had a Sultan for a brother ... and a younger sister ... They all lived their own lives until one day, the Three Evil Eskimo Women appeared and disturbed everything ... not to mention the thieving horde of robbers led by the terrible Ropardo!
The Fairy Triptych is a show composed of various tales and fairy tales, amongst them 1001 Nights, The Plump Great-Grandfather by Josef Capek, Kalila and Dimna by Ibn Almukafa, and others.
It's a show with songs, from the cabaret styled thieves to a nietzschean Sultan and rapping eskimos. It was produced by Teater Megaron.
The Fairy Triptych opened at the Institution of St. Stanislav on May 4th, 2006. Photos by Ziga Sojar.
