Peter Müller and Oliver Dassing tell a story of Creation. Naively they discover the elements of the Theater and discover the material from which it is made. It is full of surprises; informative and interesting. But mostly it is playful, funny, exciting  and bewildering. It's theater!

In the Beginning it was dark.  A stranger enters an empty space.
He is there, but he doesn't know why.  Suddenly there is light.
He wants to play, to hide, illuminate and bedazzle. His light falls on something.  A curtain!  All of a sudden there is a front and a back, an inside and an outside. And there is a special atmosphere in the air!
What's missing? Perhaps a dress, to dress up in? Words that become language? A sound that becomes music?  And someone to play with.  All the world's a stage and above it an endless sky with  spotlights and speakers and curtains and flies.
...That's how imaginative and universally understandable well made theatre can be and
in the words of Mr. Fraidy - so "Very much so - beautiful".

A disarmingly simple story that shows everything that can be achieved with a little technical sophistication and a few sounds of imagination. But most of all it is the precise interaction of all. Great theatre for little people!

Everything that theatre needs.......
