Within every farewell hides a small death. What does it mean, to actually say goodbye? To someone, or to all the large and small things from which we grow in our lifetime? In von hier nach dort the performers accompany their visitors on a farewell trip, a fun-loving adventure full of music, arts & crafts, dressing-up, singing & dancing, to face the great unknown with courage and celebrate the miracle of life together!
