Cecil:Auf der Suche nach der Insel der Trøtentiere

  • Music

Cecil is a caterpillar. And Cecil likes iceberg lettuce. That’s why he really wants to go to the Island of the Trøtentiere – because there’s always a party and you can eat iceberg lettuce all day long, as much as you can eat. So up on the herring cutter of Captain Penry – the always insomniac captain with the iceberg phobia – and off they go. With elephant seals, killer fish and pirates – and everything it takes for a turbulent sea adventure. Only when they finally arrive, everything is completely different than expected. “Cecil” is a tribute to the journey as a destination. A wild, surprising and enigmatic sea adventure that celebrates not only living in the moment, but just doing it. With child-friendly, fresh language without a pointing finger, self-evident facts are turned upside down.

The production of “Cecil” was sponsored by the Cultural Office of the City of Frankfurt am Main.
