fairy tales - really grim!
Two actors, an original text and a small stage are all that is needed for an exciting 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.
“Rapunzel, let me down your hair...”, words of a fairy tale that are at least as well known as its authors, who recorded them in writing for posterity. Everyone knows this fairy tale: a story of the fulfillment of the most long-held wishes and the first great and everlasting love. But if we let this fairy tale become reality, it begins to take possession of us and suddenly the characters become part of us. Suddenly it is the fairy tale that observes and questions the viewer. Everything is turned upside down and abysses open up that can only find expression in an opulent baroque opera.
Snow-white, blood-red and black like the soul of the step-queen... Falsehood, resentment, vanity and beautiful murders, a delicate child in the snow with seven dubious dwarves: a complete classic, but one that doesn't spare us anything. In this fairy tale, chaotic poetry, grotesque absurdity and quirky monstrosity push into the twilight with untamed wildness and want to make themselves believable to us. Don't sleep through the most beautiful nightmare ever dreamed!
