The Swiss Embassy, Pro Helvetia – the Swiss Arts Council, and Goethe-Zentrum Hyderabad, in collaboration with the ITC Hotel Kakatiya, are presenting Peter Rinderknecht’s Portofino–Ballade, an exciting small-sized puppets' show for audiences young and younger, mixing fantasy and reality with skillful theatrical performances, on 23rd January, at the ITC Hotel Kakatiya.

Portofino–Ballade is a play with music and puppets for curious people from the age of 7. Mr. Cuckoo pops out of the clock on the hour, every hour, year in, year out. That's his job. His son hangs out in the back room, bored to death. He doesn't want to take over his father's job; he wants to make his own way in the world.

Playing a double bass that opens up like an advent calendar, a musician takes us into the land of "What if". What if double basses were clocks? What if cuckoos were men? Thus, herein lies a poignant story of family and freedom, and what they really mean.

Peter Rinderknecht has been for more than two decades one of the most important representatives of the Swiss theatre scene for the young public. Almost all his stagings, like Portofino–Ballade, are his own productions, and are also in collaboration with renowned Swiss authors. Through his open way of story-telling, he creates a unique theater world, in which reality and fantasy are closely knit. Portofino-Ballade was part of the European Children And Youth Theatre Week.

The entry by invitations only. The performance will be repeated on 24th January at the Vidyaranya High School, for which passes can be collected at the Goethe-Zentrum office, opposite the A P State Assembly. Please contact 6652-6443/2324-1791 for further details.
