Eine Geschichte der Welt

What is the universe made of? From a nutshell, a rib, sparks of stardust? And what did it all start with? With a word, a crash, a moment of perfect silence?
Some questions are so big, they deserve more than just an answer. In search of explanations, three curious researchers embark on a fantastic journey, turning the theatre upside down. An entire universe lies in the shade, in the folds of a curtain they encounter the dangerous world of giant lizards and the molecules dance in the spotlight. They encounter order and chaos, defy all contradictions and dare the impossible. With the help of soft and round things, fingers, colors and loud noises, the three invent what has so far been forgotten in schoolbooks. Together with the audience, they immerse themselves in stories that are so big that perhaps only the little toe appears under the curtain.

Developed in cooperation with the 2nd class of the Gerhart-Hauptmann-Grundschule and the 6th class of the Grundschule am Pappelhain.
