Fairy tales - really grim!

The stage becomes a colorful table with something for everyone: highly entertaining fun. 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.

Once upon a time - Grimm's Fairy Tales in the Glass Palace. Two actors, a well-known original text and a small stage - that's all you need for maximum theatrical happiness!


“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!

Rabbit and Hedgehog

The classic par excellence, the primal grimm. This is how the brothers Jacob and Wilhelm taught how to make their tall tales come true in a playful way: using two actors, a tiny stage with a beer mat and great attention to literal detail. The original text is as holy as the Bible and taken seriously like Shakespearean ham. What it says is a strict instruction for action, even and especially when the hare competes with the hedgehog for seventy-three laps. Who plays the hedgehog woman? And how, pray tell, does one fall for the same cheap trick credibly 73 times? Well, quite simply: with the help of the audience and with great pleasure, yes, that's what they promise: Grimm free on the Fairytale Mountain!
