A show without words

On a table set up especially for this purpose, an extensive railway is built as the audience watches, captivated by the story of a dog that decides to overcome his fear of the unknown and find the one he loves. He sets off by train and, all along his great railway adventure, makes many new canine friends who will help him in his quest.

Presented without words, this charming show is for toddlers, train aficionados and dog lovers! Four puppeteers handle a host of rod puppets with humour and dexterity. They also play percussion instruments and work the railroad switches, to the great delight of an audience beguiled by the adventures of their travelling hero.

Running time: 40 minutes
Technique: rod puppets

This show will also be presented at the Bridges Festival in Mississauga. This tour has received support from the Canada Council for the Arts.






Founded in 1949, Naivni Divadlo Liberec was one of the first professional puppet theatres in the former Czechoslovakia and has become one of the most renowned in today’s Czech Republic. Its productions have been performed on five continents, to acclaim from both professionals and the general public. Since 1973, the company has also organized the Mateřinka Festival, a major international biennial event for pre-school audiences. This is Naivni Divadlo Liberec’s first tour to Montréal.
