Just a few months in the past, youth creator Pim Lammers was threatened by ‘paedo hunters’ due to a brief story for adults. Earlier than that, in 2018, he received the Zilveren Griffel for his image guide The little lamb that could be a pig (with illustrations by Milja Praagman). The guide was known as the very first Dutch transgender image guide. In a cute means, it makes this matter negotiable for toddlers (and older kids, and adults).
At Het Filiaal Theatermakers, theater maker Sacha Muller has now made a efficiency of this for 4+. He’s not less than as cheerful and carefree. That is additionally due to the good songs. Muller performs along with actor Maurits van den Berg. As a result of one image guide is a bit skinny, they’ve strung collectively the tales from three Lammers image books, and that works very nicely.

First we see The little lamb that could be a pig, by which a lamb is checked out madly by the opposite cattle when it likes to roll within the mud. Inside it seems to be a pig. Subsequent follows The farmer and the vet, by which the animals faux to be sick, attempting to pair the farmer and the vet. In Camel Camel a brand new, unusual animal involves reside on the farm.
They’re tales about acceptance and friendship and being your self. With music, projections and a cramped gypsy wagon on stage, Muller and the others forge the tales right into a coherent entire, as harmless as something. A higher distinction with the hysteria of the riot by which Lammers ended up just a few months in the past can’t be imagined. Cattle are merely irresistible.
