Struwwel 1h 30 Min10 plus
WILDE BÜHNE for an inclusive, cross-generational ensemble | Based on the children's book »Der Struwwelpeter« by H. Hoffmann | World premiere
Short info: Leipzig residents spin the »children's book classic« through their very personal lives. – About creative obstinacy in growing up and being an adult.
When children are well-behaved, the Christ Child comes to them. But if they cause trouble, only fight, bite and such things, then they are not good enough ... Really? No? Right?
Suppenkasper, Zappelphilipp and Streichholz-Pauline – everyone knows them. They all originate from the picture book »Der Struwwelpeter«. Pfui! He was never good enough...? Was he? Together with people from Leipzig we want to find out exactly that. Because how is a »normal child«? In a bitterly shimmering revue, we take a ride on the merry-go-round through possible educational concepts and sing the praises of the unteachable obstinacy! Pfui! Are you allowed to do that? Yes, I am!
