It’s hard to take a break in the midst of the Christmas rush. Teatteri Mukamas’ traditional Jouluyö provides a respite for busy people both big and small. The puppet theatre performance tells the Nativity Story from the perspective of a faithful donkey.

Jouluyö tells the story of the at times perilous journey of Mary, Joseph and a small donkey to Betlehem. The protection of angels and the guidance of a bright star lead to the wonder of the Christmas night. The performance gives you time to calm down and to realise what is most important at Christmas.

This charming puppet theatre performance features two actors. Acoustic instruments accompany the narrator’s voice and lights help pace the story.
