A dance parable for a young audience from the ages of 5 and up

Foxes have many faces: they are cute and cunning predators, simultaneously shy and curious. Independent like a cat, but also sociable like a dog. They live in the forest as well as in the city, in the ice and in the desert. They wander between worlds, adapt, conquer new places. They have many characteristics and many habitats.  They sneak and jump, they bark and sing. They are considered to be smart, sometimes as magical, too. Never simply good or plainly evil. They are at home everywhere, and there are stories and fairy tales about them to be found in all cultures.

The danced parable FOXX sets out on the trail of the versatile animal. Three performers immerse themselves in fox worlds and try out the abilities, movements, and characteristics of the animal. While doing this, they jump and move between the European Reineke and the magical nine-tailed Japanese kitsune, between fairy tales and manga, traditional dances, and K-pop. It will be colourful, fairy-tale-like, shrill, and shy, sensitive, and mysterious, all at the same time.

Choreographer Barbara Fuchs follows in the trails of the animal that provided her surname. Composer Jörg Ritzenhoff creates atmospheric electro-acoustic soundscapes for this, and playwright Charlotte Luise Fechner writes a fox parable for the production, which will also re-emerge vocally in FOXX .
