Die Bremer Stadtmusikanten (Theater o.N.)
Four figures set off together on a journey to escape their fate. Through sharing solidarity along the way, they find new strength and meaning in their lives. The familiar Brothers Grimm folktale is told here using puppets, the players’ own hands, light and shadow, live music and noises.

Theater o.N. is an almost 40-year old association of actors and puppeteers, directors, musicians and writers. Founded in 1979/1980 under the name Zinnober, it was the first independent theater in the former GDR. Since 2010, the theater located on the famous Kollwitzplatz has focused on the exploration and advancement of theater for audiences two years of age and up. Since 2013, it has presented the biannual FRATZ International - Festival for the Very Young. Since 2016, the regional festival Berliner Schaufenster for theater for audiecnes between the ages of zero and six has completed the programming for young audiences. In addition, the theater is developing productions with children and teenagers in socially disadvantaged areas. The program for adults is dedicated to new play development using the methods of biographical theater and puppet theater.
The theater has offered productions for children and adults since 1978. The desire to combine visual art such as painting or sculpture led to figure theater. We work in a multimedia manner in our productions: scenic material is developed from the intersection of spoken word theater, figure theater, object theater and material theater as well as film projections and overhead projections. In addition, the theater regularly goes on tour and appears in both national and international festivals.
