Shamans - A Story About Friendship and Magic
Somewhere in the far North, there is an international shamanic school in the middle of the forest. The students come from every corner of the world to become shamans. Everyone already has a special power, but there are strict rules in the school about interactions among the students, regarding the use of native languages, spells and magic outside the school time. However, one day something unexpected happens and the students decide to break the rules to save the school. Will the three students Ursula, Tremar, and Šams be able to rescue their master and break the enchantment on their school?
With the help of the audience, the three main characters will discover the magic of friendship and diversity. This multilingual and interactive play is a homage to shamanism, magic, and friendship.
