Janosch - The TIger and Bear Tales

A children’s theatre performance by adults for children 5+ years old.

Is it better to stay home with all the given comforts? Or a little adventure in getting around the world to get some perspective? Is that perspective worth the trouble of going around? Join the Bear and the Tiger on their adventure to THE LAND OF THEIR DREAMS… meet several lovely little friends they make on THE(IR) TRIP TO PANAMA…

And while we are on it… WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU RECEIVED A LETTER? Or have to forgotten the good old post card? Not the Tiger, not the Bear… nor Aunty Goose. Explore a whole ‘OLD’ world of writing letters… a world where they still use a Phone as a Phone. Where a PHONE means a PHONE and does not come with Cameras for Selfies and Groupfies… A LETTER FOR TIGER… 

JOIN US AT SPACES (Elliot’s Beach, Besant Nagar, Chennai, INDIA) for a show of JANOSCH… at 5:30 p.m and 7:30 p.m on SUNDAY the 18th June, 2017 with all your kids (yours, those in the neighbourhood and any and every kid you can bring along!)… and the KID IN YOU!

It’s a show for 5+. ALL ARE WELCOME!

DURATION: 70 mins.
