What if I grab the wolf from the inside by the tail and pulled him inside out like a mitten!

Baron Munchausen
Phony Baron or The Greatest Dreamer
This family-friendly play is a multimedia retelling of the classic tale of Baron Munchausen–a fictional figure prone to fabricating larger-than-life stories from his adventure-filled life.

Who is Munchausen - "phony baron" or "the most truthful person on earth"? Where is the line between truth and fiction? But is it really that important when you set off on a journey with the most resourceful, courageous and witty traveler who can even take you to the moon!
You’ll need to bring your imagination with you, or you won’t be able to see the scary wolf that the baron faced in the snowy Canadian fields, the African lion or the northern bear. Moreover, the baron won’t be able to get to the moon without your help.

The performance uses video and animation, as well as shadow theatre techniques. Little travellers can choose for themselves where to sail with the baron - North or South, and it will affect the story.
Brand New Experience
As the Baron guides his audience through the story, he encourages them to be creative when facing challenges of their own and leaves them confident in their abilities to find a way out of difficult situations. The children become more than passive viewers: they learn that their opinion matters, and they can truly influence how the story unfolds. The Incredible Adventures of Baron Munchausen is a captivating and heartfelt performance that will leave the family amused and inspired by the magic of storytelling.
