Oskar’s Amazing Adventure is an original piece of theatre for young children and their families and features Theatre Fideri Fidera’s characteristic mix of physical theatre, comedy, music, song and audience involvements throughout.
Oskar tells the tale of a little puppy who leaves his snowbound home in the mountains in search of a friendly animal to play with. But most of the animals outside are hibernating and the only ones Oskar meets are more interested in eating him than playing with him. But luck is on Oskar’s side when running away from a hungry fox, he falls down a hole in the ground and lands on top of a young marmot asleep in its burrow. Despite this rude awakening, the marmot forgives Oskar, and with her amazing digging and whistling skills, helps the puppy evade the fox and reunite him with his family. But then Oskar has to learn the art of patience while he waits till spring for Marmot to wake up from her long winter’s sleep and for them to play their favourite game together.
Theatre Fideri Fidera was set up in 2014 by Colin Granger and Marina Kobler, founding directors of the independent UK arts organisation Komedia, to produce and tour new children’s theatre. Their aim is to approach each show as if it were the audiences’ very first visit to the theatre and to ignite a deep-rooted passion for live-performance. Their principles are that children’s theatre needs to be accessible, entertaining, engaging, inspirational and offer a shared experience for both children and their families.
