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.
Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go everywhere. In the constant competition for recognition within society, anarchy is simply forgotten as a productive element of creation. Always higher, ever further, ever faster and in the end only one winner gets the gold medal. But what about all the others standing next to the winner's podium? It is said that once your reputation is ruined, you live quite unabashedly. And the world is open: those who behave well get A's; the others have sex appeal.
“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!
