Mäuseken Wackelohr (Rike Schuberty)
The cat ate all of the mice, only Mäuseken was lucky enough to escape, even if one of the ears suffered a little. An adventure begins and Mäuseken learns: no reward comes without risk. In her work, Rike Schuberty searches for new means of narrative and uses a variety of aesthetic tools equally in doing so. In Mäuseken Wackelohr, she places the audience in the perspective of the mouse.

Rike Schuberty has produced her own theater productions since 2009 with artists from the fields of the performing arts, music and video art. Im Vordergrund liegt die Erarbeitung von Bühnenstücken mit unterschiedlichen künstlerischen Mitteln; Schauspiel und Musik stehen dabei gleichberechtigt neben Puppenspiel oder Videokunst.
Grashüpfer, or Grasshopper, is a small puppet theater located in the center of Treptower Park in Berlin. It opened its doors for the first time on July 1, 1997. Since then, the small venue has become very well-known for its coziness and individuality. Each year, up to 16,000 people visit this comfortable performance venue. The theater’s stage has recently hosted more than 50 different artists including solo performers and art collectives. The different pieces are shaped by the wide variety of different types of puppets being used, from marionettes, shadow puppets and rod puppets as well as by the variety of performances that range from traditional puppeteering to the modern and abstract animation of objects. In this manner, we ensure that all members of the audience will find something to their satisfaction.
