Kuzma the Gremlin Gets an Award


Director: Matjaž Farič


Premiere: 28 March 2013

Description

Kuzma hates to wash, hates anyone who's not an elf and thus hates to discuss his health and the weather with other inhabitants of the forest. He's tone-deaf, but has inclination to tones, if only when his spirits are truly high. He doesn't much care for dancing, because he suffers from rheumatism. But when a cute girl pixie invites him to dance, Kuzma nevertheless places his rheumatism on a mushroom and dances.

Every month, the sprites meet, on Fridays, and brag about their elfin achievements. In September, Kuzma the forest gremlin, the hairdressing elf, the radio elf, the kitchen sprite, the builder elf and the printing imp met. The rest were absent due to a nasty epidemic of elfin measles. The meeting was secretly observed by a magpie and she heard what impishness Kuzma was up to. It soon became clear that most of the trouble in forest were his doing. The magpie immediately told what she'd heard to the squirrel, the hedgehog and the bear. The next morning, they gave Kuzma the taste of his own medicine.

Although certain impish tricks might seem funny, we must know that by doing them, we can make someone's life very difficult. The more tricks we play, the sooner it will happen that someone will gather forces and return us in good measure. The performance about Kuzma the gremlin, directed by Matjaž Farič based on the fairy-tale by the literary master Svetlana Makarovič will be performed with acting and dancing and suitable for the youngest spectators, those who've blown out four or more candles on their birthday cakes.
