Wake-up Call
A long time ago, maybe not too long ago, actually it may be now, a girl lives her life. She is neither particularly pretty, good nor pious. She is not one of the princesses she read about in her childhood. She is just an ordinary girl, just like plenty of others in her land. The girl should grow up and become a woman already. She should do many things, and she should not do even more. In the meantime, she gets lost in the forest. Sloppy. And the forest, as you know, is lurking full of dangers. It would be good to get out of that forest, but she does not know which path is correct…

“Wake-up Call” is a solo puppet performance inspired by the most popular fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm. The main theme of the performance is femininity today. What connects a modern girl with Sleeping Beauty or Little Red Riding Hood? Do they still have common topics or are they completely strange to each other?

The performance was created thanks to the art scholarship of the Białystok City Mayor
