Curtain Up!

for everybody 5+

A Co-Production with Katkatha Puppet Arts Trust from Delhi (India)


Curtain up, curtain down. Open, close. No curtain there. Finally, a curtain is coming fluttering in. Drum roll, please - it can start. Theatre. It can start again, finally.

Applause, applause, for those who have come, to watch, to listen, to cheer for the beginning, and for the ending of the story. And what happens in the break? Behind the curtain? Breaktime, cheese sandwich. A play around playing, a pleasurable invitation to theatre and what is behind it.

Directed by Barbara Kölling, the performers Bahar Sadafi and Mamadoo Mehrnejad look into the elements of theater - and what makes theatre so special.
