"What The Old Man Does Is Always Right" by Hans Christian Andersen is the first classic fairy tale to be adapted into a stageplay at Robotic Theatre.
The plot starts in a peasant cottage, the home of our main characters – a loving and supportive couple. The husband decides to go to the fair, in order to sell his horse or trade it for something else, that could be of more use in his household. What will he bring back? See for yourself!
Contrast is a major element of this stageplay. Technologically enhanced actors not only reenact human beings, but also – contrary to their industrial feel – move to the countryside. The futuristic, metal appearance of our robots is in contrast with the original stop-motion clay animation by Monika Kuczyniecka.
