‘Ivan Turbinca’ is the retelling of a Romanian fairy-tale from the 1880’s, portrayed as toy theatre. This adaptation involves music, a miniature set on which the story will be told, and an expansion on the original tale, based on other folk tales provided by members of the community.
This project aims to be the start of bringing less known folk tales and fairy-tales from around the world, to British audiences, in new and exciting ways. ‘Ivan Turbinca’ is a co-created project where we have worked alongside people seeking refuge and asylum in the UK, as well as migrant artists from all around the world. This short fairy-tale created by famous Romanian writer, Ion Creanga, has been expanded on, and it combines other tales from around the world.
Presented as part of ‘The Tiny World of Toy Theatre’ exhibition at Pickford’s House.
