Ljubljana Puppet Theatre is the main Slovene theatre for puppet production for children and youth.

Mojca and the Animals is one of our oldest and most popular folk tales, especially among our youngest viewers. It not only reflects the spirit of the time, but also brings us back to our roots. The famous fairy tale, first published back in 1954, tells about an innocent Rabbit who is wrongly convicted and persecuted till the end of his days for a simple reason that he is the smallest and the weakest member of society. On the other side, there is this canny little Fox, who cheats everyone, and yet is never held responsible for it. Presented to us on stage this time, is a new Mojca, who defines the spirit of our time through her relationships.
