16.00 Milada Boráros - Viktória Éva Nagy - Jankó Schneider: The Sweet Dream of Hansel and Gretel
18.00 Bóbita Puppet Theatre: The Hill the Devil Ploughed

In the traditional market puppet play, a cheerful red-capped guy gives a lesson to the devils and to death itself with his pancake pan. A scintillating and joyful puppet-glove play preceded by market spectacles. It might even turn out that there are children with juggling gifts in the audience.
János Pályi received several awards for his performance on various national and international festivals where he was named the best puppeteer.
“János Pályi belongs to the best puppeteers. His acting in László Gallant is a revelation, for while preserving the original, he builds it further in his own terms.”
Gábor Bóta, critic

One, two or maybe three lads are on their feet in this country, but one of them is a gal. These well-dressed lads are just as shrewd as Péter the Deceiver, hero of their story, but they don’t only play tricks on those that deserve it, but you as well. Or not only you, but themselves too? If you are curious who can say the braver thing, how the judge punishes his wife, or how the three loud heroes can make do with the tight space they have, then this is where you have to be! For the narrative line of the performance, these three souls are not enough, we need you as well, so bring along your loudest voice.

Of many a tale there is now one:
Bro and sis to the woods are gone,
A pretty house is what they find,
All sweets on top and all around.
Sweet dream is it, or one come true?
We’ll tell the whole story to you,
The road, the house, the spell, the mess,
Hansel, Gretel and all the rest.

The Hill the Devil Ploughed - the performance of Bóbita Puppet Theatre with giant puppets and stilts
The hill Szársomlyó next to Villány is said to have been ploughed by the Devil himself.
Why did he do so, you’re asking. He badly wanted to conquer Harka, the daughter of the witch in Nagyharsány, and the only way he could win her was to finish ploughing the hill by the break of dawn. He had almost succeeded when the witch figured out a new trick to save her daughter from the Devil…
Our outdoor performance is based on the myths of the “Devil’s Cauldron” with artist on stilts, giant puppets and hot music.
