Ariol is a little blue donkey, nine years old, and the protagonist of the eponymous children’s comic of already thirteen books in French, with five also available in Slovenian. The performance will pay particular attention to those episodes that can be linked to the actual social events. Ariol’s stories, which include members of all generations, are warm, lively, entertaining and witty, and sensibly don’t paint the world in black-and-white and don’t eschew more serious topics. The authors carefully avoid moralising or being too didactic, but the points of the stories are created so that they open the possibility for talks at home or at school. The characters are life-like, easily identifiable with, and the authors don’t simplify everyday situations, but rather present them with liveliness, spark and a good dose of humour.
