‘Duck, Death...’

As part of the ‘German Puppet Theatre’, the Indian premiere of ‘Duck, Death and Tulip’ by Martina Couturier will be held at Ranga Shankara, as part of the ‘AHA! International Theatre for Children Fest’. Couturier and Ikkola’s ‘Duck, Death and the Tulip’ is based on the children’s book by Wolf Erlbruch.

The Duck has lived her calm and quiet life, as an unexpected guest shows up at the lake — Death. After the initial fear, Duck invites Death to bathe. Slowly, the two come closer, and yet at the inevitable end, Death is a little sad. It is directed by Joerg Lehmann and music is by Anja Gilles.
