Young Tanzhaus · Kleine Monster series

CANCELLED: Lea Martini & Dennis Deter

Eine Geschichte der Welt
Small Stage
10.06.2020 – 12.06.2020

Dennis Deter and Lea Martini collaborated with two primary school classes to get to the bottom of the universe’s origin. Did it emerge from a nutshell, a rib, from sparks of stardust? And how did it all start? With a word, with a bang, with a moment of perfect silence? Some questions are so grand, they warrant more than just one answer!
Searching for explanations for the unsolvable, three inquisitive explorers* venture forth on a fantastic journey, turning the theatre upside down in the process. There is a whole universe hidden in the searchlights’ shadows, they encounter the dangerous world of enormous giant lizards in the curtain’s creases, and the molecules dance in bright stage lights. The performers* meet order and chaos, they defy all contradictions and dive into the really vast narratives as well as into the really small stories, together with their audience. They simply invent what has, up to now, been left out in schoolbook curriculums, by using fingers, colours, and loud noises.

Duration: 50 min.
