In the world of mice, just like in ours, courage has a vital role, but at the same time fear itself is just as important, for the ones who are irresponsibly daring or reckless can easily get into trouble. “A mouse cannot be fearless” – is often told to Elemér, the Skinny Field Mouse, the protagonist of the story, who distinguishes himself from other mice by his bravery complemented with wit and resourcefulness. His reward will be no less than princess Cincinella, the daughter of Louis Albino the XIIIth. The path leading to her, however, is adventurous and perilous, because first he has to fight the Hairy Flittermouse, has to win Sir Marten the Grey’s trust and has to trick Mutsifer and Cutsifer.
The responsibility taken for others makes you mindful and reveals your own limits. Elemér, the Skinny Field Mouse recognizes fear only when his loved one gets into trouble, but his courage will become exemplary to the residents of the Attic.
“A glove puppetry performance can be highly challenging even for experimented puppeteers: several characters and accessories, playing with both hands and the unconventional height of the puppet stage make the task a lot more difficult” – claims the director of the show, but he trusts in the actors and hopes that the audience will receive the play with delight.
