Fairy tale - really grim!

The specially developed format of two half-hour fairy tales per performance 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. And the stage becomes a colorful table of gifts, with something for everyone: highly entertaining fun.

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.

Princess and the Pea

Once upon a time there was a prince who wanted to marry a princess. A real, genuine and true princess. What else? But what is that, a real, genuine and true princess? The king's daughter he finds is not "white as snow" and "red as blood" or particularly delicate and noble... This princess is rather headstrong. And who actually decides the choice of princess?

A fairy tale about the search and the unusual methods of searching for love, about the way of talking to and about princesses, and about a pea or something similar.

The new fairy tale Princess and the Pea by Hans Christian Andersen is a rebellion against being a princess. A rebellion against clichés inherent in fairy tales.
