A ride without boundaries
For bold dreams
Theater feeds on
Follow the trail of animals.
Animals are the closest living creatures to humans. We love them, enjoy their presence, and at the same time try to dominate them without inquiring what they feel. In the play, exotic animals known from the zoo introduce children to a fabulously colorful world, discovering their true nature, beauty and wisdom. This is the first educational performance in the history of the Polish Dance Theater for viewers aged 6 to 11, which is complemented by an artistic-educational presentation available on the theater's website to support the tracking of the show's meaningful tropes. KoczkodanSe infect audiences with empathy for animals and a passion for dance, bringing the power of knowledge, fun and emotion.
A spectacle with no age limit, dedicated to young audiences from age 6 to 11.
