Once upon a time - that's how all the brothers' fairy tales begin. Two actors, a well-known original text and a small stage - that's all you need for maximum theatrical happiness.

The specially developed format of two half-hour fairy tales per performance reveals how closely the crude charm of these fairy tales, their strange humor and the unwieldy horror are connected to one's own fears and hopes.

And then the stage becomes a colorful table with something for everyone: highly entertaining fun.

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.


“Always remain pious and always good. And I will always be around you.” Always. Always. Always. A promise of happiness made to a child by its mother that is not kept. Instead, the child discovers a world that simply does not correspond to his basic trust and basic sense of justice. And yet it doesn't let its back be broken and fights for its promise of happiness. Forever!
