“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!

A young girl, Vasilisa, lives with her father, her stepmother, and two stepsisters in an old hut next to the edge of a forest. The stepmother and her daughters envy Vasilisa for her beauty and diligence. They bully and torment her, forcing Vasilisa to do all the hardest, dirtiest chores. But unknown to them she receives help from a doll that was given to her by her mother before she died. One day, Vasilisa is sent into the forest to get fire from the dreaded witch Baba Jaga, and her actions will ensure that her life will change forever…
