Country: Turkey
Time: 40 Minutes
Age: 5+
Language: Non Verbal

Ugly Duckling is different from her other siblings. This difference could be felt from the first moment of her birth. Animals living in the poultry house do not want her because of this reason. Even though mother duck acknowledges the duckling despite her difference and ugliness at first, she cannot resist the pressure and abandons her later on. Being left all alone, ugly duckling struggles to live, gets through many dangers and realizes that she is a beautiful swan. Emphasizing “We can be different, we may not be like others but that doesn’t mean that we are not valuable.”, Ugly Duckling opens the door to the world of the outcast. Founded in 2004, Uçaneller Kuklaevi is one of the most important representatives of the contemporary puppet art with its 18 shows, thousands of performances, 95 international festival participations, 4 national and 2 international awards.
