Fairy tales - really grim! Jorinde and Joringel & The Snow White

The format, specially developed by the Hexenberg Ensemble, makes clear how closely the crude charm of these fairy tales, their disturbing comedy and unwieldy shivers are linked to the very own fears and hopes of every human being.

Jorinde and Joringel & The Snow White

Jorinde and Joringel

...loves Joringel loves Jorinde loves.... yes, beautiful!

But only when hearts break, love becomes great, only fear and pain of irretrievable loss teaches us to appreciate it. A fairy tale, finely spun from poetic stammering, from love, madness, death, rapture and magic, grips us with a cold hand to the heart, until with a bleak, sore sigh it finally holds still forever. Whoever thinks that there is no more room for romantic feelings is mistaken! Jorinde loves Joringel: and only when they have died do they love forever.

Snow White

Snow-white, blood-red and black like the soul of the step-queen... Falsehood, ill-will, vanity and beautiful murders, a tender child in the snow with seven dubious dwarfs: a turgid classic that also spares us nothing. Fantastic as hardly ever, in this fairy tale chaotic poetry, grotesque absurdity and quirky monstrosity pushes into the twilight with untamed wildness and wants to make itself believable to us. Do not oversleep the most beautiful nightmare ever dreamed!
