Tricktrek - a wooden laboratory.

We are Alexander and Serafima.

Our project Tricktrek grew in 2017 from the idea of a wooden mechanical performance based on the book by the English writer R. Dahl "The Enormous Crocodile". The performance was a participant in the theater festival of the Bolshoi Puppet Theater.
The animals, the heroes of the performance, have turned into play objects for children. Subsequently, we developed about two dozen different toys. All of them are unique and each has its own secret. Dragons flap their wings, crocodiles open their mouths, elephants shake their heads, and some magical creatures hide gold coins.
During 2018-2022, we constantly developed new forms for creative laboratories and master classes, held interactive events for children, showed performances and took part in various festivals.

The play based on the work of R. Dali "The Enormous Crocodile".
All the scenery of the play, all the characters are made of wood.
This performance is a mechanism that complicates everything towards the finale.
The main character is a terrible, terrible, nasty-opposite, treacherous HUGE Crocodile who wants to eat for dinner ... a child! But this is not so easy to do, because a hungry crocodile is developing a whole series of Witty tricks, showing miracles of disguise.
Fortunately, the villain's idea was not successful, because all the jungle revolted against him: the hippo, the elephant, and even the monkey.
This is a very, very funny story!

Duration: 30 minutes.
