White Fang

A production based on Jack London’s famous adventure novel White Fang, the story of a wolf-dog. Far to the north, in a hostile environment, during the rough and tumble of the Gold Rush, the puppy White Fang, half-dog and half-wolf, is growing up. Wild and effervescent, White Fang doesn’t fit easily into packs of wolves or people; he neither accepts nor is accepted easily. As he grows up, he encounters violence and hatred, as well as kindness and even love. Which of these will ultimately be imprinted on his soul?

"White Fang is an adorable performance. I think it contains the most clever use of camera on stage I have ever seen. Not only that. The whole concept is precise, well thought over, actors are great. The protagonist of main character is unbelievable." Mojca Redjko, Program Associate, Slovenian National Theatre Maribor
