For children aged between 5 and 10

The performance is based on an eponymous picture book, a collection of humorous stories that earned its author Peter Svetina the national Večernica Award for best original children’s or young readers’ fiction.

Helge the porcupine is not really sure when a porcupine is ripe enough… However, a fall out of a cherry tree gets him entangled in a series of unusual and puzzling events. Accompanied by a she porcupine, Nikozija, Helge navigates the world of cunning and adorable creatures doing all those things that people normally do: painting, falling in love, singing, lounging about, driving, shopping and sweeping the floor.
