The basis of our play are the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm. Individual, selected stories are interwoven in a way, that gives rise to a self-contained fairy tale cosmos, which follows its own very particular logic.
Distinctive motifs, such as being eaten, involuntary sleep of young girls or evil stepmothers, who perceive their stepdaughters to be threatening competition and consequently seek to eliminate it, function as a modulators to move from one story to the next.
Also, all the texts used are taken literally from the original “The Brothers Grimm’s Children’s and Household Tales”!
