fairy tales - really grim! For children from 4 years

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.

Hans in Luck

"A little happiness becomes big one day ..." A fairy tale that could just as easily tell the success story of the former witches' cauldron:  From a parasitic punk theater in the backyard to a paradisiacal park stage to a magnificent grand theater. There is no other way to tell this unique story of this "Hans-Im-Glück-Theater", whose ensemble, with its naive optimism and playfulness, has always grown and, with a joyful composure, has been able to turn any downfall into a success in the end, than simply to (experience) the fairy tale.


"Rapunzel, let down your hair for me...", words of a fairy tale at least as ancient as its authors who recorded them in writing for posterity. Everyone knows this fairy tale: A story of the fulfillment of the most ardent desires and the first great and everlasting love. But if we allow this fairy tale to become reality, it begins to take possession of us and suddenly the characters become part of us. Suddenly it is the fairy tale that observes and questions the viewer. Everything turns upside down and abysses open up that can only find expression in an opulent baroque opera.

For children from 4 years.
