To the Moon with Slyboots, Thickhead and Hungerpot

About the performance

This puppet-fiction performance is based on the motifs of Miki Muster’s comics and thus explores the significance of a part of Slovenian and Yugoslav pop-cultural history and legacy.

A fan and collector of Muster’s comics re-reads the adventures of Slyboots, Thickhead and Hungerpot. Old heroes come to life before his eyes and together they travel to the moon!

The performance is suitable both for children (5+) and adults.
