“For centuries, people have believed that the Earth is the solid centre of the universe. They believed that the Sun, Moon, and other planets orbited the earth. No one doubted it, no one examined whether it really was.“

The production about the life of the famous scientist, mathematician, astronomer, philosopher and physicist Galileo Galilei is inspired by the book of the same name by the acclaimed author and illustrator of original children's books, Petr Sís.

The story took place a long time ago. So long ago that the Sun was still orbiting the Earth and not the other way round. Or at least most people thought so. And at that ancient time - almost five hundred years ago - one day a boy was born in the Italian city of Pisa. Bright stars shone in his eyes. He was named Galileo. He preferred to watch the sky. He was very curious and inquisitive. Every secret was a challenge for him. What if it is all completely different?

The puppet production for children and adults about the search for truth, love for the stars, curiosity and ingenuity was prepared by a team of a young talented director Anna Klimešová, for whom it was the first cooperation with the Naive Theatre.
