MOTHER GOOSE AND THE WOLF

Description: Ana-Maria Velciov narrates a fairy tale whose action and characters give a distinct and local color to the commonly known as "The Wolf and the Seven Young Goats" (Aarne–Thompson–Uther Index nr. 123). By combining the geography of the place she lives in (the wetlands of Banat) with the anthropomorphic goose, wolf and fox, she creates a playful interchange between reality and fantasy that remains strongly connected to both physical nature and the humans' common life experience: his struggle for survival, his way of solving and overcoming mistakes, his dealing with sly and evil approaches as part of the daily life.
