Theatre play for a young audience
After Charles Dickens for children from eight years
Almost 200 years ago, the writer Charles Dickens invented the orphan Oliver Twist who, with his desire for a little more food, challenged an entire system. A child with no family, no home and no rights. – which in Dickens’ day was nothing really out of the ordinary. A right to food, security, education and leisure was not guaranteed in those days. Children were the property of adults, who in Oliver Twist’s case are 99% real bullies. This year, children’s rights will be 30 years young, and this is the reason for the interdisciplinary ensemble Traummaschine Inc to deal with the legal situation of children. Because only those who know their rights can defend them and stand up for the rights of others.
Traummaschine Inc, the Munich/Hamburg performance collective dares to take on a classic with O, Twist. With the means of the theatre and tricks such as suspense, nightmare interpretation and pickpocketing, they reconstruct a child’s fate together with their young audience and give the story a new twist. This much is promised: whoever wants more gets more.
