“Using two-dimensional puppets, Roberto Frabetti magically transforms a simple story into one that teaches children about fear and that it is alright to be afraid.”

Ruby Lim-Yang
Artistic Director
ACT 3 International


La Baracca – Testoni Ragazzi


For 1 to 3 years
May 29 to June 3, 2018
Asian Civilisations Museum, Auditorium
Running Time: 40 minutes

Crikecrak, a nut cracks. Crikecrak, a branch in the woods breaks… This story is about nuts, woods, and two adorable bears – Piccololorso and his baby sister. It’s Mammalorsa’s and Babbolorso’s birthday and the siblings want to bake them a cake.

“Where can we find the nuts and chestnuts for the cake?” asks Piccolalorsa.
“In the woods!”
“But I am afraid to go into the woods, it’s so dark!”
“We’ll go together! And don’t worry, everybody’s afraid of something…”

So, nuts and chestnuts are replaced by the true protagonist of the story: fear. The woods are frightening, darkness is frightening, even the foreign animals are frightening. Entering the woods, the youngsters must learn to overcome their fears and face up to them with courage.
