THE SAD PRINCE
CHILDRENS THEATRE, B ANJA LUKA

Visual theatre for all ages, The Sad Prince (Tuzni princ) tells of a journey of self-discovery in an illusory world. The story of a lonely boy who, one day, as he looks at himself in the mirror, decides to draw a new friend - a sad prince - in order to help him discover 'something else'. It is a delightful and dextrous wordless blending of live action and shadows - a style that the company have made their own. This was recently voted best production at the Perugia International Festival of Puppetry, Italy. Adapted and directed by Biserka Kolevska after the lyric poem by Predrag Bjelosevic; designed by Svila Velickova
