fairy tale - really grim!

The specially developed format by the Hexenberg Ensemble brings to light how closely the crude charm of these fairy tales, their disconcerting comedy and the unwieldy shudder are connected with everyone's very own fears and hopes.

Mother Holle

Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go everywhere. In the constant competition for recognition within society, anarchy is simply forgotten as a productive element of creation. Always higher, always further, always faster and in the end only one winner gets the gold medal. But what about all the others who stand next to the winner's podium? Once your reputation is ruined, you can live quite freely, so the saying goes. And the world is already open: Those who behave well get A's; the others, however, get sex appeal.

Snow White

Snow-white, blood-red and black like the soul of the step-queen... Falsehood, ill-will, vanity and beautiful murders, a tender child in the snow with seven dubious dwarfs: a turgid classic, but one that spares us nothing. Fantastic as hardly ever, in this fairy tale chaotic poetry, grotesque absurdity and quirky monstrosity pushes into the twilight with untamed wildness and wants to make itself believable to us. Do not oversleep the most beautiful nightmare ever dreamed!
