The Naughty Pigs, Golden Stick Festival

The Naughty Pigs
The performance about two pigs, who skilfully trick all the animals in the yard and make constant fun of them, is designed as a cluster of hoaxes of the artistic team, into which the performers cleverly allure the viewers to actively help the two pigs - Tine and Tone - at whatever they are doing. The actors and animators thus tackle several tasks – play main heroes, tell the story and animate the other animal characters. The performance's visual design stems from the picture book; therefore, the animal characters remain two-dimensional. Every character is composed of several pieces of soft flysch, set and moved by the performers with the magnets around the performing surface, on which the scene of the backyard conflict is drawn by light and thread.
  • The original picture books by Manica Klenovšek Musil are also special for their textile illustrations. Her text book The Naughty Pigs (2015) received the Most Beautiful Slovenian Book Award, awarded in the field of children's and young adult literature.
