What can you expect from a puppet show named Reggae Rabbit named Boooo (live! nonetheless)?

Apparently a lot! It was absolutely fantastic, fresh, with lots of fun (live) music the kids could dance to. And the story got me involved even though it was in German.

Going to a puppet show reminded me I hate children`s plays. Not because they are childish (as I said I loved the story), but because they want to get you involved in the play – that means you have to participate when I just want to sit and watch. When I have to participate I kind of feel like I should get a discount for the work I put in.

Well the kids have to participate, but the kids are often too scared or too ashamed to play along, so it comes down to us – parents. And we are the parents that do not speak German, so it was kind of awkward. Although there was a lot of music, therefore we danced more than participated :).

The show was held at a student place on Campus of the University. The place itself is something special. It is called the Glashaus and it was probably a green-house once, now it is the Campus party place. The decoration is accordingly “relaxed” – e.g. we were sitting on benches made from empty beer boxes covered with blankets. The enthusiasm of the performers and the vibe of the place soon makes you forget all your posh preferences and you give into the hippy-reggae vibe – all of us except Mojca that didn`t feel the vibe (she is from now on the Posh Kuzma).

If anybody has a chance to see this play I recommend it, but leave all your inhibitions about looseness at the entrance and you will have a good time.

Lutkovna predstava:

Kaj lahko pričakuješ od predstave z naslovom Reggae Zajček z imenom BOOOO (v živo, če verjamete)?

Očitno veliko! Bilo je prekrasno, sveže, z veliko zabavne (žive) glasbe na katero so otroki lahko plesali. In še zgodba je bila dovolj zanimiva, da me je pritegnila, čeprav je bila predstava v nemščini.

Obisk otroške lutkovne predstave pa me je spomnil, da v bistvu ne maram otroških predstav. Ne zato, ker bi bile predstave preveč otroške (kot sem rekel, me je zgodba celo zelo pritegnila), ampak zato,  ker moraš ob takih predstavah sodelovati, ko bi najraje samo sedel in užival v predstavi. Ko pa moram sodelovati, pa se mi zdi, da bi mi lahko dali kakšen popust pri vstopnini.

No, vi bistvu bi morali otroki sodelovati, vendar so večino prestrašeni ali jih je sram, zato se morajo vklopiti starši. In midva sva starša, ki ne govoriva nemško, zato je bilo malce nerodno. Ker pa je bilo veliko glasbe, smo nadoknadili pri udeležbi s plesom.

Predstava je bila v študentskem prostoru Univerze, ki je že sam po sebi nekaj posebnega. Poimenovan je Glashaus (steklena hiša), ki je bil verjetno pred tem kakšen rastlinjak za gojenje rastlin, vendar je bil preurejen v študentski prostor za žuranje. Oprema in urejenost prostora je torej ustrezno “sproščeno” – npr. Sedeli smo na klopeh, ki so bile sestavljene iz praznih plastičnih gajb od piva, ki so jih pokrili z dekami. Energija nastopajočih in samega prostora sta bila vzrok, da smo hitro pozabili na naše želje po višjem standardu in smo se prepustili reggae občutku – vsi razen Mojce, ki nekako ni začutila celotne zadeve (od sedaj jo bomo klicali Fensi Šmensi Kuzma).

Če bo kdorkoli imel možnost, da si ogleda predstavo s svojimi tamalimi, jo priporočam, samo pustite svoja pričakovanja po urejenosti in visokem standardu pred vrati in preprosto uživajte v dobrem vzdušju.
