Rusty Nails & Other Heroes

/ Theatre

    / A performance for parents and children (6+)
Price: 100 / 50 CZK (children up to 12 years)

Welcome to a world where anything can change anytime into anything. This poetic, animated performance for parents and children (6+) will transport you into the world of playfulness that we so easily forget about in adulthood. It is a world where pieces of string, rusty nails, old rubber gloves, and pieces of wood can become adorable action heroes.  

The performance is an interesting combination of theater, visual art, and animated objects that are turned into constantly changing characters. You will also experience magical transformations from the omnipresent sounds and the minimalist music. This latest production by the legendary Dutch ensemble TAMTAM is like a burst of energy for the imagination; so don’t leave it at home!


TAMTAM – objektentheater is an international theater ensemble that since 1979 has specialized on visual performances based on image, not text. TAMTAM tells stories through objects, images, sounds and music, video, and modern innovative stage technologies. The ensemble was founded by artists and performers Gérard Schiphorst and Marije van der Sande. Their work, which is famous for its unique aesthetic style and subtly absurd sense of humor, has been performed at theaters and festivals in 26 countries around the world. Besides theater, they also write music and children’s books, and organize theater workshops and master classes.
