Twelve-year-old Ayoub is supposed to help his father slaughter a sheep. But Ayoub can’t stand lamb and he can’t stand his father either.

Afterwards, this light-hearted and musical show will go on tour.
In 2024, Belgium and the Netherlands will be the joint guest country at Germany’s major book fair, the Leipziger Buchmesse. At the request of the Dresden-based Theater Junge Generation, which finds stimulation in Laika’s sensory work, we are making a stage adaptation of two award-winning books by the Dutch author Benny Lindelauf: Tortot, The Cold Fish Who Lost His World and Found His Heart and Whole Stories for Half a Soldier.
Der Koch und der halbe Soldat (The cook and the half soldier) is a compelling story about the friendship between a child soldier and a field cook, set amidst the mud and blood of the battlefield. A timeless fairytale about the futility of war, dished up with a dash of dark humour. Jo Roets is directing the Dresden ensemble in this brand-new collaboration, Peter De Bie will create an immersive sensory experience and Gert Jochems joins as a guest actor. The play will premiere on 11 November 2023 in Dresden (DE).
