Actors and puppets are playing and singing together in this playful and interactive performance! And what’s more, they are carrying out electrochemical experiments! Spectators can thus see with their own eyes the manufacture of a toothpaste for elephants! They will also learn that electricity may be contained within vegetables and fruit, and explore the multiple achievements of Edison, who was nicknamed the ”Wizard of Menlo Park”.
Inventors and their inventions. We hear so much about them! Every day we use many such inventions, taking them for granted. Yet a slight moment of discomfort is enough to make us appreciate each gadget and how much ingenuity and effort its invention required. Let’s take the example of one of the most famous and prolific American inventors, Thomas Alva Edison: although he did not always encounter success, support and acclaim throughout his career, his creative enthusiasm outweighed his misgivings. He maintained his boyhood joy of discovery throughout his adult life. His story is one of great strength, courage and determination to follow one’s path despite being an object of ridicule. Produced under the direction of Hana Mikolášková.
