Where Are You Going, Little Horse?

written by Rada Moskova

directed by Margarita Blush



Where Are You Going, Little Horse? is considered one of the gems of Bulgarian puppet theatre and has been staged world-wide. Written in the 1970’s by internationally acclaimed Bulgarian playwright Rada Moskova, the show blends puppetry, shadow imagery, and music to tell a timeless tale of freedom, choice, and consumerism.
The Little Horse cannot keep up with the wild horses and accidentally ventures into the Carnival where everything appears fun and safe. The Master of the Carnival convinces him to stay and to be placed on the carousel where The Little Horse can run without ever getting tired. Very quickly the fun turns into a dizzying nightmare and The Little Horse longs for his freedom. He convinces The Little Boy, the apprentice of the Master, to run away together and after an intense escape and chase, they join the Free Horses and run free, no longer afraid.
