The Town Musicians of Bremen
A play with rod puppets and other figures based on the well-known fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm.
The donkey at the bottom, the dog on top, the cat on top and the cockerel at the top - who doesn't recognise this image? The four exiles and doomed men manage to put the robbers to flight. This is a wonderful story about the shared power of being able to give life a new perspective.
The conditions for this were not necessarily the best - after all, dog and cat live in a proverbially tense relationship. What can a cockerel do to change that? Sometimes it takes the authority of the experienced donkey not to lose sight of the common goal of "Bremen". But he realises: "You'll find something better than death anywhere!".
A light-hearted play with live music for children aged 5 and over and for adults who enjoy having fun with children.
