THE LITTLE MERMAID AND THE BOY ROKO
The online puppet performance for children The Little Mermaid and the Boy Roko was created based on the picture book of the same name by the author Rosie Kugli and it was directed by Irena Škorić.
The Little Mermaid and the Boy Roko is the first Croatian picture book of the author Rosie Kugli, created during the coronavirus pandemic, which carries a strong environmental message and educates its readers about the fundamental values in life. The play is based on the opposition of sea and land, people and animals, health and the coronavirus, responsibility and irresponsibility, selfishness and sacrifice. The world of innocent sea creatures is collapsing due to the negligence of those “at the top of the pyramid”, which is also the best embodiment of human irresponsibility while the human word has been conquered by COVID-19. The play describes all of the harm that befell humans and animals in an interesting and child-friendly way, and it encourages us to think about how important our role is in preserving life on Earth.
The play was produced by the Croatian Film and New Media Night art organisation and the project was co-financed by the Ministry of Culture and Media of the Republic of Croatia through the programmes for digital adaptations and the creation of new cultural and educational content.
