Grimm. Ein deutsches märchen

Dieser Inhalt steht nicht auf Deutsch zur Verfügung und wird daher in einer anderen Sprache angezeigt.

After last year’s Frankenstein at the Théâtre National, Jan-Christoph Gockel is back with one of his earlier hits in which he also explores a phantasmagorical universe. Always working with his colleague Michael Pietsch who conceives and creates the incredible automatons for all of the spectacles, this time he immerses himself in the story of the Grimm brothers. Even if most children have been put to bed with one of their fairy tales, what do we really know about Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm?

In Grimm, we find out that the brothers were always passionate about folkloric myths and legends and saw them as a way for children to tame their ancestral fears. Excellent observers of their era – Germany just before the revolutions of 1848 – they also complete a remarkable work on the German language. It is this story that Jan-Christoph Gockel tells, mixing true life, fantasy and magic, and extraordinary puppets.
