“3 little pigs” by the Theatre Magnetic from Belgium
A SHORT BONELESS SHOW, THE TALE REVISITED!
Three little pigs a little lost build their houses near the forest. But in the forest, it smells like fir trees, because a wolf lives there, and he is clever! The popular story is here revisited in an offbeat object theater thanks to the imagination of an exalted narrator. He scratches with humor the varnish of good feelings that enamel the watered-down version known to all.
