This is a collaborative project of The Mayakovsky Theater and the BABY LAB.

The performance is for kids, their cats and their parents (although cats, perhaps, you can leave at home).

All children – are artists. Artists, writers and musicians - all rolled into one. Parents can be close and not even guess that they accidentally wandered into a magic wonderful world created by the imagination of their child, where the sea lies into the bed, a tower of toy blocks builds it by itself, and it is worth to learn wisdom from the toy cat.

The boy wakes up in his bed and falls into the ordinary routine for the little ones - washing, having breakfast, walk, games, food, swimming, sleeping. But even the simplest things could become an extraordinary one if your cat – is magical. The waking up from a dream – this is the hunting for a sunshine ray. It needs a considerable cunning and acrobatic skill just to get away from the bed. The noise outside the window inspires the kid to build a train, and the  evening swimming - go fishing. And if at the beginning of the play it is unbearable to get away from the room, by the end, he suddenly grows till the door handle and stretches to open by himself...

This plastic play, wh ere nor the kid does not speak nor the cat, but there are poetry and music sounds.

The master class on learning the verses will be held after the performance.
