Why Did the Fish Cry?The Train Theater
Join us in a very special library filled with colorful pop-up books—some quite teeny, others absolutely gigantic—filled with hidden secrets and surprises.
Two actresses, five stories, and a vibrant, amazing world. Children are invited to take a peek into Oded Burla’s tales about bizarre animals all made of paper. What happened to the giraffe when the raven offered to tied his neck in a knot? Who is in love with the scorpion? And what made the fish cry, of all things?
At the end of the performance, all of the characters pop back into the book. What do you think would happen if you tried to open a book?
