“We tell stories. And today we are going to tell you a tale from the forest. Open your eyes, prick up your ears, the story is starting…”

For 25 years, Nicole and Martin have been travelling the roads and seas of Europe, pitching their magical White Tent, and enchanting audiences with their unique travelling theatre. Award-winning masterpiece shows, based on traditional tales, combine narrative, music, song, dance, juggling, acrobatics, laughter, goosebumps and wild imagination for the whole family. You’ve never seen anything quite like it!

The Fisherman and His Wife follows a fisherman who sits and waits for a fish to bite. To his amazement the fish that he catches is an enchanted one: one that grants the fisherman and his wife many wishes…What their wishes are you will find out from the fisherman’s repeated trips to the sea…Nicole and Martin conjure up an entire glorious play out of a single wooden box: the ocean, the long table in the castle, an emperor’s finery and even the sun itself! This joyful show is a rollercoaster theatrical journey from one wish to the next, until the biggest wish of them all…
