An Egg with a Tail

Ila van der Pouw

Belle finds a strange, large egg in her backyard. Suddenly it’s cracking and a strange creature crawls out: a baby-dragon! And if there is a baby dragon there also has to be a mother dragon!

Belle doesn’t know much about dragons, but what she does know is that they are dangerous and fire breathing. One of the permanent residents of het garden Mrs. De Graaf, the black raven, says it straight up: I’m not going to wait for mother dragon to put you on the barbeque! Then Belle begins to worry about it. What to do with this baby dragon?

An Egg with a Tail is a humorous, poetic and exiting show about doing the right thing.

About Ila van der Pouw
The performances of Ila van der Pouw make you forget you are watching puppets. In her own unique and compelling way, Ila is able to breathe life into her mansize puppets  While watching her perform you tend to forget you are looking at puppets.     

Ila was nominated for the Rabobank Culture Prize and won the Audience Prize of the North Holland Newspaper. An Egg with a Tail was nominated for the Zapp Television Theatre Prize 2013. And so was her amazing adaptation of the Big Friendly Giant in 2016.

Ila is also a well liked guest in China. Ever since 2009 Ila played her shows in different cities at festivals in Shanghai, Xian and Langzhong and won several prizes and awards: best performance, best animator, best puppeteer.
