Fiddlesticks is the magical journey of a playful violin with legs who breaks free from his strings and leads us into a world of musical fantasy in search of the beautiful Violinka. On his magical journey, puppets made from old instruments spring to life - birds fly out from music scores, a horse emerges from the bow of a violin…

Garlic Theatre conjures a spellbinding tale of rhythmical twists and turns with an imaginative blend of clowning, rod and shadow puppets, percussion and live music.
