It’s so much fun that summer is here and the kids are on vacation! It hasn’t happened in a long time! 😊
We’ve missed you very much and we are happy to present a busy summer at Itim Ensemble:
A celebration of PuppetCinema, live shows in the real world, interactive shows that you can watch online and creative workshops.
What’s the plan?
Truly great stories start small.
An extraordinary new production.
A journey, two frinds making their way back home
A digital interactive experience for the whole family >
An Epic Space Odyssey in miniature! Part toy theater, part B movie sci-fi adventure, Planet Egg joins obsolete electronics together with high-performance salad fixings and brings it all to life through its unique mix of lo-tech moviemaking and old fashioned puppetry.
A story told with visual language, Planet Egg is the perfect show for international audiences of all ages! Hope you’re hungry…

The first adaptation of its kind for adults, based on Janusz Korczak’s 1923 children’s allegory “Little King Matty and the Desert Isle.”
Matt is a ten-year-old newly orphaned prince who must take over the throne after the untimely death of his parents, the royals. The child-king refuses to accept resignation and cynicism to the injustices of the world, declares himself a “reformer king”, and seeks to establish a utopian kingdom for children and the disenfranchised. He soon discovers that the job of ruling is a fraught one indeed, and he is forced to go through an accelerated process of growing up.
The show invites us to embark on Matt’s journey, in the wake of a lost childhood, of resistance, triumph, and failure; a brief moment before the sobering reality of adulthood hits.
