Gordon and Tapir 45 Min4 plus
Puppet theater based on the children's book by Sebastian Meschenmoser
Kurzinfo: Da hat die Zooverwaltung geträumt! Der chaotische Tapir zieht bei Pinguin Gordon ein und bringt dessen geordnetes Leben gehörig durcheinander. Irgendwann jedoch wird es Gordon zu bunt und er trifft eine weitreichende Entscheidung, die in einem Klopapierspektakel gipfelt.
They are like day and night. Nevertheless, Gordon and Tapir are the very best friends and not only that – they also live together. Together they can talk about everything for hours. But suddenly, the daily life in the shared flat is in crisis – the toilet paper is constantly running out and the living room slowly but surely turns into a jungle. And Gordon the penguin likes it quiet and tidy. Tapir is completely different – he loves it wild and colourful. It doesn't match perfectly and already… there's a fight. But their friendship is important to them and so they consider: What can we do?
Sebastian Meschenmoser's picture book deals sensitively and humorously with the acceptance of otherness and the family theme number 1: order and disorder. At the Theater der Jungen Welt, the story about the possibility of liking everyone as they are, comes as a production for puppet theater.
Premiere: March 27, 2021 (World Theater Day)
