I Fablernas Värld – The World of the Fables
Folke Dansteater, Linköping, Sweden
Premiere 17 March 2023
A baroque dance and music performance inspired by Jean de La Fontaine’s collection of fables.
Welcome to the world of the fables where different kinds of animals live side by side, all with their own quirks and characteristics. Meet the brave lion, the cunning fox and the nervous little cricket as they try to find their place in society. They discuss and reason, are deceived and argue about important and unimportant things – about who is the best at jumping, how the country should be governed and not least who will get the much sought after French cheese!
A baroque music and dance performance inspired by the 17th-century writer Jean de la Fontaine’s collection of fables. About power, democracy and making your voice heard despite being small.
Suitable for children 6-9 years old.
