fairy tales - really grim!
Two actors, a familiar original text and an intimate stage are all that is required for an extremely exhilarating theater experience! Once upon a time - Grimm's Fairy Tales in the Glass Palace.
The specially designed format, which offers two half-hour fairy tales per performance, illustrates how closely the idiosyncratic appeal of these stories, their special comedy and the spooky tension are linked to everyone's deep-rooted fears and hopes.
In no time, the stage is transformed into an opulently set table with something for everyone: highly entertaining joy.
Jorinde and joringel
...loves Joringel loves Jorinde loves... yes, nice!
But only when hearts break does love become great; only fear and pain of irreparable loss teaches us to appreciate it. A fairy tale, finely woven from poetic stammering, from love, madness, death, delight and magic, grips our hearts with a cold hand until it finally remains silent forever with a desolate, sore sigh. Anyone who thinks there is no more room for romantic feelings is wrong! Jorinde loves Joringel: and only when they have died do they love them forever.
Puss in Boots
“... but the third one only got a hangover.” Where does the happy ending come from? No chance! This is the fairy tale about ourselves: Creating the greatest possible theater with almost no resources, humble in the author's spirit and selflessly in the service of our audience, this has always been our concept.
