“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!

In The Girl Without Hands, a poor miller meets a stranger in the forest who makes him a proposition – and he accepts the terms. But…oh…he shouldn’t have! The pact is with the devil himself, and controls the fate of the miller’s daughter. How will she manage to escape her terrible fate? She is helped by an angel, then meets a king and becomes his queen. Meanwhile, the devil is watching her, biding his time…
