“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 & 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 Musicians of Bremen follows a donkey, a dog, a cat and a rooster who are old and tired and no longer fulfil their master’s expectations. A tragic end seems unavoidable…huh?! NO WAY! The four animals decide to escape – and off they go with a spring in their step. They set off for Bremen, where they intend to start a new life as town musicians. But on the path through the forest they discover a robbers’ hideout. Will they ever make it to Bremen? And how on earth will Nicole and Martin manage to play eight characters all at once?
