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.

Grim Reaper

One thing is certain: Death always comes. And it cannot be outwitted. Anyone who tries, however, will have to deal with it - the end. A fairy tale in which the boundaries between good and evil, life and death become blurred. What is the essence of what we call life? Love? Deception? And what happens when we go against the forces that hold our world together? Against death no herb grows.

Puss in Boots

"... but the third only got a hangover." Where, please, is the happy ending here? 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.
