All kinds of fairy tales - really grim!
Once upon a time - two actors, a well-known original text and a small stage - that's all you need for maximum theatrical happiness!
The specially developed format of two half-hour fairy tales per performance reveals how closely the crude charm of these fairy tales, their strange humor and the unwieldy horror are connected to one's own fears and hopes.
And then the stage becomes a colorful table with something for everyone: highly entertaining fun.
For 15 years, the Hexenbergensemble has been humbly wandering through the Grimm Magic Forest in the trail of crumbs left by Hansel and Gretel. We search for the most bizarre, the most terrible, the most beautiful fairy tale and encounter death, the devil and enchanted princesses. The best, the grimmest, the fairy tale of all fairy tales has not yet been told.
But most of them are very shy of the stage. And we do the devil to force them into the spotlight using artifice. Because on the Hexenberg the fairy tales are allowed to stage themselves, they just submissively follow their airs and graces. They don't tell them, the fairy tales play with them and lead them to the depths of their archaic subculture.
And so they are determined to get lost for their audience again this season and lure them astray with desire.
“Always remain pious and always good. And I will always be around you.”
Always. Always. Always. A promise of happiness made to a child by its mother that is not kept. Instead, the child discovers a world that simply does not correspond to his basic trust and basic sense of justice. And yet it doesn't let its back be broken and fights for its promise of happiness. Forever!
