It all began in 2014 with “Snow White” and “Puss in Boots”. Followed by “Cinderella,” “Sleeping Beauty,” “The Bremen Town Musicians,” “The Brave Little Tailor” and “The Devil with the Three Golden Hairs”. Some of the most beautiful German and European folk tales, rehearsed and staged every year as part of our children’s theater project „Wir spielen Märchen“ (We Play Fairy Tales) with students from the third and fourth grades of the Gesundbrunnen Elementary School in wedding. Many of our young performers come from socially disadvantaged backgrounds, the vast majority of them have a migration background and have not grown up with the language of the Brothers Grimm. The intensive text work that is an important part of “Wir spielen Märchen” helps them to feel more at home with the German language. And, of course, it’s the acting and dancing in particular that they really enjoy and encourage them to try things out, discovering their own strengths and talents and thus gaining more confidence in themselves. Most importantly, they learn that they can create something completely new, something very special, if they all put in the right effort together. Something that not only moves them, but also all those who watch it.
