Fairy tales - really grim! FOR ADULTS ONLY

The specially developed format of two half-hour fairy tales per performance brings to light how closely the crude charm of these tales, their disconcerting comedy and unwieldy frisson are linked to 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.

Sleeping Beauty

To be a child again. Isn't that what everyone wishes for? To let go once again, to indulge one's inner play instinct and simply to be allowed to ask naive questions: This is something that few adults are allowed to do. Yet it is the infantile playfulness and creativity of a child from which we adults can learn the most, and which are deeply rooted in each of us. Being a child is not a phase of life, but a part of being human. It slumbers in you, too, and is just waiting to be kissed awake from its Sleeping Beauty slumber. May the playing never come to an end!
