About the performance

What if a whole life was contained in a single fairy tale?

A fairy tale that plays out over and over until it ends the way you want it to.
With each turn you get one step closer to what you think you want. But with each turn, what you want changes and leads you in new directions. To be thrown into the dark forest and lost, is the lot of every young man. But what you find out there, and how you deal with it, is the real adventure. The goal is not to find your way out of the forest, the goal is to find yourself, in the forest.

The performance is sung in German.
