Bikkmakk - A Puppy's Garden Adventures
No parent would be too concerned if we told them that the curiosity of this shaggy puppy dog is no greater than the desire of small children to know absolutely everything. Bikkmakk, the star of the story, is a decidedly cheeky doggy who gets to know the secrets of the garden together with his friends Surrano, Mumu and Futrinka, as well as an enchanted dragon they meet along the way. Bikkmakk was born and raised in the garden. To the sound of music, he playfully makes friends with the surrounding nature and finds himself caught up in some remarkable adventures.
Not for the first time at Müpa Budapest, students of the Keleti István Art School and the Kolibri Theatre Studio will have the chance to present the fruits of their work over the years. The young puppet actors will present Bikkmakk's adventures with the help of the puppeteers Ágnes Török and Károly Szívós. The teachers have helped the young artists to include their own ideas and thoughts in the show, ensuring the production will be fresh, youthful and original. The children's parents may recall the adventures of the curious puppy from their own bookshelves at home. Attila Kristóf's popular children's book - which Károly Szívós adapted for the stage - was first published in 1979. The clumsy but totally lovable Bikkmakk is a timeless character. In fact, the garden where he and his friends' adventures take place at the top of Rózsadomb is now a protected area. It is a charming story, rich in humour, showing how a small child takes their first uncertain steps, this way and that, into the big, wide world.
