White Fang

Production based on the famous adventure novel by Jack London - White Fang - a story of a wolf-dog.

Far North in a hostile place during rough times of Gold Rush, White Fang, a cross-breed of dog and wolf puppy, is growing. Equipped by wildness and effervescence, White Fang cannot easily fit to a pack of wolves not even among people; he is neither accepted nor accepts easily. During his growing up he encounters violence and hatred as well as kindness and even love. What will eventually be imprinted in his soul?

About the company

Drak Theatre belongs among puppet theatres which managed to succeed on the international scene. It is the youngest professional puppet theatre founded in the Czechoslovakia after World War II. Drak Theatre’s aesthetics builds on the traditional East Bohemian puppetry, which was included in UNESCO’s list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2016. Still, Drak has remained a dynamically evolving organism bringing original and innovative techniques, resulting in many national and international awards.

"White Fang is an adorable performance. I think it contains the most clever use of camera on stage I have ever seen. Not only that. The whole concept is precise, well thought over, actors are great. The protagonist of main character is unbelievable." Mojca Redjko, Program associate Slovenian National Theatre Maribor
