The sHOW

A fascistic comedy combining puppets, clowning, stand-up, and songs, that tells the story of a mother raising her child destined to become a monster!

Inspired by the true childhood of major 20th century dictators, Michal Svironi introduces the audience to a visually enchanting world of fantasy. With great originality and humor, she manages to translate a tragic subject into satire while raising profound questions about parenting, education, and responsibility.
