“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! This is Cinderella.
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 rounds. Who plays the hedgehog woman? And how, pray tell, does one fall for the same cheap trick credibly 73 times? Well, it's quite simple: with the help of the audience and with great pleasure, yes, that's what they promise: Grimm free on the Fairytale Mountain!
Admission from 4 years old.
