Already it has toured successlully to Israel, Germany. Japan, Yugoslavia and plans are being made lor visits to the USA and Switzerland in the autumn. Originally lorseven musicians. narrator and dancerthe replacement at the latter by shadow puppets means that the story can be acted out in the puppets' unique mix at lollt charm and originality through the sculpture ol the shapes. Suitable tor adults and children. (Carol Main)
