Fairy tales - really grim!

The special format of two half-hour fairy tales per performance shows 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.

Once upon a time - Grimm's Fairy Tales in the Glass Palace. Two actors, a well-known original text and a small stage - that's all you need for maximum theatrical happiness!

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

Rabbit and Hedgehog

The classic par excellence, the primal grimm. This is how the brothers Jacob and Wilhelm taught how to make their tall tales come true in a playful way: using two actors, a tiny stage with a beer mat and great attention to literal detail. The original text is as holy as the Bible and taken seriously like Shakespearean ham. What it says is a strict instruction for action, even and especially when the hare competes with the hedgehog for seventy-three laps. Who plays the hedgehog woman? And how, pray tell, does one fall for the same cheap trick credibly 73 times? Well, quite simple: with the help of the audience and with great pleasure, yes, we promise: Grimm free on the Fairytale Mountain!

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 themselves: to create the greatest possible theater with almost no resources, humble in the author's spirit and selflessly in the service of the audience, this has always been the concept.
