Crikecrak – Piccololorso, his baby sister and the fear

Bologna, 2018
A production by

La Baracca ONLUS

Company, Italy, Bologna
Since 1976, La Baracca Testoni Ragazzi produces and programmes shows for children and young people.

Crikecrak, a nut cracks. Crikecrak, a branch in the woods breaks…
Because this story is about nuts and woods, and once again, it begins with a cake and a birthday party. No, actually two birthday parties: Mammalorsa’s and Babbolorso’s.

«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… each of us has their own fear.
