Videk’s Shirt

Some shots from the truly wonderful ‘Videk’s Shirt’, a puppetry show by Tinka Slavicek and Leonie Dodd (with musical accompaniment by Alex Carter) at the Little Angel Theatre in Islington yesterday.
Based on a 19th century Slovenian children’s story by Fran Levstik, Videk’s Shirt tells the story of little Videk, who has his one and only shirt snatched away from him by the blustery Slovenian wind, and is helped to make a new one by a series of animals he meets. ‘My name is Videk, my shirt blew away….’
You can find out more about Tinka and Leonie (a.k.a. The Puppetellers) and their shows here.
