fairy tales - really grim!
Two actors, a familiar original text and an intimate stage are enough to create an extremely enjoyable theater experience! Once upon a time - Grimm's Fairy Tales in the Glass Palace.
The specially developed format, which presents two half-hour fairy tales per performance, illustrates the close connection between the unique charm of these stories, their special comedy and the captivating horror atmosphere with the deep-rooted fears and hopes of everyone.
In no time at all, the stage is transformed into a festively set table with something for everyone: highly entertaining enjoyment.
Hansel and Gretel
The daily shock reports of abandonment and abuse arouse our outrage, and we turn to the stock market or sports in disgust. But when Hansel and Gretel secretly sneak into our hut, they are long dead: spoiled, frozen, consumed. The little corpses, withdrawn and shy, confess to us what happened to them. And somehow the ghosts manage to drag us along into their nameless horror: we become the child ourselves, standing around godlessly in the cold forest night, left alone, lost... Mom? Father? Doesn't anyone hear us? Is there no help coming from anywhere? No? No, only the evil witch hears our calls and everything, everything keeps getting worse: Not a nice fairy tale, that! Because it's not a fairy tale.
People think that fairy tales are “told”. It's the other way around: fairy tales are nasty, autonomous parasites and they shamelessly make use of us. At the very edge of tangible reality, they watch us as if through a Venetian half-mirror. Their animalistic, lustful voyeurism creates goosebumps and drags us into their abysses, like into a black hole. Everything blurs: Is this the reality we live in?
