Fairy tales - really grim!: Frau Holle & Der gestiefelte Kater (Puss in Boots)

The format, specially developed by the Hexenberg Ensemble, makes clear how closely the crude charm of these fairy tales, their disturbing comedy and unwieldy shivers are linked to the very own fears and hopes of every human being.

Frau Holle & Puss in Boots

Mother Holle

Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go everywhere. In the constant competition for recognition within society, anarchy as a productive element of creation is simply forgotten. 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.

Puss in Boots

"... but the third only got a hangover." Where, please, is the happy ending? No chance! This is the fairy tale about ourselves: To create the greatest possible theater with almost no means, humbly in the authorial sense and selflessly in the service of our audience, this has always been the concept.
