Vom Fischer und seiner Frau (Nicole Weißbrodt)
An architect sits in her office brooding over the wishes of her clients: even more shops, hotels and car parks. Suddenly a talking butt appears in the office, wanting to hear the story of The Fisherman and His Wife. The fairy tale is told with objects from the office, a great deal of enthusiasm and lots of paper, and the question is answered: does fulfillment make our wishes happy?

As an independent actor and puppeteer, Nicole Weißbrodt loves working with creative people and following and further developing ideas. Everyday life with children has inspired and trained her to fill her pieces with content that is it times grotesque, but very close to life.
The Brotfabrik Bühne (Bread Factory Theater) in the Weißensee district of Berlin is an independent venue for touring shows and co-productions from Berlin's independent performing arts community as well as national and international groups. The schedule of programming, comprising around 300 performances a year, presents a diverse range of forms and genres from plays, performance, dance and musical theater to improvisation, puppet and object theater. Young artists and groups regularly perform in the 40-80 seat auditorium alongside established theater makers. Another focus of the schedule of programming is the productions for children.
