fairy tales - really grim!

Two actors, a familiar original text and an intimate stage are all that is needed for a highly enjoyable theater experience! Once upon a time - Grimm's Fairy Tales in the Glass Palace.



The specially designed format with two half-hour fairy tales per performance shows how closely the idiosyncratic charm of these stories, their strange comedy and the eerie tension are interwoven with the deep-rooted fears and hopes of everyone.


The stage instantly transforms into a richly laid table with something for everyone: highly entertaining enjoyment.




Snow White


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!


rabbit and Hedgehog


The classic par excellence, our original grimm. This is how the brothers Jacob and Wilhelm taught us 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 the literal details. 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 rounds. 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!
