Little Lamp, Pea and the Feather, inspired by The Princess and the Pea by Hans Christian Andersen, is an amazingly gentle performance that lulls toddlers into a pleasing emotional state through a colourful set design and intriguing, sensual effects – tolling of little bells, playing of harp as well as repeating of simple sounds, syllables and words. Its complex and interactive setting not only wakes up even the youngest viewers but also maintains their attention, despite the fact that they may not be impressed by the fairy tale’s story the same way as their somewhat older pals.
Although not all toddlers have developed their rational and emotional aspects of perception equally, they will still benefit from this performance. Its visual images are conceived based on the expert discovery in the field of babies' and toddlers' visual perception. And it is exactly for this reason that its performers are using vivid and bright colours, picturesque images, large colour surfaces and geometric shapes. Music and songs play a very important role in this performance as well.

  • While theatre for babies is still a novelty in Slovenia, it is already well established and accepted in the international arena. Since it is designed for children aged 1+, it mostly arouses enthusiasm, although it sometimes tends to provoke some scepticism as well. This theatre form, which already firmly established itself in the Scandinavian countries, has lately developed throughout Europe as well.

  • We called this performance »a puppet rockaby«. All the music, composed for this show, is based on the lullaby melodies. Puppets and object can indeed rock us to sleep. The lullabies, containing people's thousand year old recipes and wisdoms, are drawing a gentle line between wakefulness and sleep.

Commentary
