The play "The Bound Prometheus" by Aeschylus is about resistance to an all-powerful authority, about a political prisoner who refuses to give in. In today's world, free movements are suppressed by repressive regimes, prisons are filled with people who refuse to be dissuaded from defending democratic values.

It is for these people that Prometheus takes the floor.

The Bound Prometheus is the second excursion of the Ton und Kirschen Wandertheater into the world of ancient theater. Once again, the artists:inside draw from their colorful treasure chest full of puppets, masks, music, dance and drama, bringing the great classical play to life. The text, inspired by many translations, preserves not only the dynamism but also the poetry of the original.

Clay and Cherries Theatre:

Ton und Kirschen is a touring theater group that formed in the spring of 1992 and has since made its home in Werder (Havel). The theater rehearsals take place on a plot of land in the district of Glindow. The stage set is built here, and props, costumes, masks and puppets are also made there. From here Ton und Kirschen moves with its productions in all directions of the country Brandenburg. The stage and grandstand are set up in historic squares, but also in the middle of the village or even in fields.

Every year they make guest appearances in Potsdam and Berlin and in other cities in Germany. They have also often been invited to theater festivals abroad. They have played in many countries (Ireland, Poland, Czech Republic, Russia, Belgium, Italy and Switzerland and again and again in France) and on different continents (Asia, North Africa and several times in South America).

The current nine-member ensemble of the theater comes from Germany, England, Wales, France, Italy and Colombia. Under the artistic direction of David Johnston and Margarete Biereye, who both have twenty years of theatrical experience with Footsbarn Travelling Theatre, 21 productions have been created.
