On the road with rabbits. Everything is actually cool with Andrea: He lives with his rabbit Maikel with his dad. Every now and then it is chaotic. But the three actually get along. Until the moment when Fidaa moves in with her mother and drops Maikel - supposedly by mistake. Who is then to be put down. That is when it gets too colourful for Andrea: he sets off in the foggy night for southern Germany to his mother. Maikel is still with him in, a cooling box, Fidaa is not far behind. We go with a shy boy with a girly name, a girl who prefers to act than talk and a mischievous rabbit on a road trip right into your heart.

Señor Ramiro Ramirez, an older man with a moth-eaten wardrobe and stubborn habits, goes out for his walk as he has been doing every evening for the past five years. In spite of his difficulties to walk, his stubbornness pushes him to reach the square in front of his house and sit down in his favorite bench; the one on the left. What Ramiro does not know, is that today something is going to change. Because his bank is occupied. Even if this might seem insignificant for everyone else, it will unleash in him feelings of anger, revenge and vulnerability. The responsible of that change is Enzo Carbonara, a cheerful street kid who lives without filters or rules. Enzo will stir up some emotions in Ramiro that will lead him to come to terms with himself. After this encounter his life will never be the same.

There is a lady living in a laundrette who prefers to spin stories instead of doing laundry... She is particularly taken with one fairy tale: the one about Cinderella with the three nuts. She must hear this fairy tale - at least once a day - and preferably tell it and play it herself. Everything that can be found in the laundrette serves as a game. Detergent cartons, mops, clothes pegs, even fluff from the pockets of old coats and: dresses, dresses, dresses! And so the laundress dreams herself into a more beautiful world, a world in which a courageous girl frees herself from dirt and injustice with the help of magic buttons. A crazy puppet and object theatre freely based on the fairy tale poem "Three hazelnuts for Cinderella" by Božena Němcová

The most desert of all pirates on all seven oceans of the world is probably Captain Knitterbart: notorious, deceitful, always on a plunder. When his ship appears on the horizon, the whole sea shivers with fear and all the sailors quiver and tremble for their heads and collars. He is feared like no other. But a powerful, fearless and courageous, not even soooo little girl named Molly turns the tables. A brilliant piece of theatre from grandpa's box: With man & rat. With battle alert and sailor's yarn. Full of fantasy and full of everything that simply belongs to a pirate story! A lively story about nasty pirates, a strong little girl and a wonderful pirate mother, based on "Captain Knitterbart und seine Bande" by Cornelia Funke.

The Princess of Determination lives up to her name. She wants to decide everything: when she goes to bed, what her birthday guests should do, even what the weather will be like. A little snotty princess - somewhere between Pippi Longstocking and "The Fisherman and his Wife" - but much more anarchic than both. At least more stubborn. We all know someone who is like the Princess of Determination. But how do we meet her? A story with pictures about stubbornness, friendship and change.

Everything we do not know is much more than what we know. Whether we will travel with Excalibur to Avalon, whether Merlin is still the greatest sorcerer in the country, whether Arthur will play a role, whether he will be invulnerable and whether he has superhuman powers through his sword - all this is unknown. What we do know: We will have to deal with a seven-headed, genuinely fire-breathing dragon, a princess in love and a hero who is enchanted. There is a lot of mysterious fairy tale air up there. And on top of that there will be a workshop afterwards. What we do know is not so little in the end!

Hahn has just moved from the village to the city and has been standing every morning on the balcony crowing. But the neighbourhood is confused: not only does he talk funny, nobody understands him. What does he want to say, day after day, with this terribly loud energy and why does he do that? They make all kinds of assumptions and are actually always mercilessly wrong! Language can separate. And connect. Not only the animals learn this in this charming story about origin, language differences and language comprehension.

The fairy tale pharmacy Pacco & Co. is run by an extremely warm-hearted dog and his assistant, who in return is remarkably stormy. When they are handed the prescription for an acute, or a chronic lack of fairy tales over the counter, they im-me-dia-te-ly get to work! First they pick up a fresh and beautiful prince. Then there is a somewhat lonely girl, seven ecstatic, crazy dwarfs. Carefully they add a bitterly evil stepmother (she smells a bit rancid!), a whole handful of magic, a lot of jealousy (that boils away, do not worry!), such a large portion of friendship that the pot almost overflows. And then only one ingredient is missing: the poisoned apple! After a very secret stirring and quite a long waiting time, hopefully a happy ending will come out in the end. See for yourself if the recipe works!

Light and shadow set out to create a world of light and dark in the great universe. Two beings that cannot be more different, but in their interplay create beautiful images. But as fast as the light pictures appear, they disappear again and again and transform into ever new fantasy formations. In the interplay of brightness and darkness, of tones, sounds and silence, of standstill and movement, a dream theatre full of magic and beautiful appearance emerges.

Together does not mean equal - together means living our different ways, our different values and ideas, our different likes and dislikes, favourite food, favourite colours, pets, children and families in one pot and getting along with it - together. In the houses of a city, in a street where many people already live together, the light comes on. Who are its inhabitants? Anna and Ben, Mrs. Schulze, the teachers of a school, the residents of an emergency shelter, the couple without children, Simon the Decider, the kindergarten children, Tom, Tim and Tilla Höckenschnieder, the night shop owner, the newspaper seller in front of the supermarket and all the others. Together doesn't mean together. Together means: to throw different lifestyles, values, likes and dislikes, favorite foods, favorite colors, pets, children and families in one pot and cope with it. Together.
