Inspired by several magical stories from different parts of the world, the original puppet fairy tale Zuna deals with the themes of responsibility, overcoming fear and the power of our actions. It tells the story of a little girl with an extraordinary gift for magic, who finds herself in the human world. Soon, however, she will find out what anger, greed and hostility can do to love and our deepest dreams. On her travels through this unknown world, she discovers the power of friendship and uncovers kindness where other people never think to look... Or have you also heard what the earthworms are saying?

CONTINUO THEATRE, MALOVICE, CZECH REPUBLIC
Since 1995, Continuo Theatre, an independent and international theatre group, has been based in the little village of Malovice, South Bohemia, in a former farmstead called the Plum Yard. Continuo’s productions defy categorisation. Movement, live music, puppets, physical acting, acrobatics, dance and striking visualisation combine to create the unique poetics of each individual production. The members of the group focus their research on analysing themes, experimenting, being surprised, learning together, developing skills and sharing the results of their work with the audience. Natália Vaňová is a performer and member of Continuo Theatre since 2016. Natália has worked on several of the company’s productions and pedagogical projects.
