Theatre Play: Ferdinand the Clown Bull
A clown play that is an adaptation of a children’s story by American author Munro Leaf, called Ferdinand the bull. Ferdinand is a gentle, young clown bull who instead of playing rough with his fellow young bulls, likes to sit and smell roses all day. This story is about staying true to who you are and trusting the world will always make space for your uniqueness and idiosyncrasies even though it may not seem possible.
Watch the clowning theatre act of Ferdinand who fights all odds with humor and simplicity.
