What is the universe made of? From a nutshell, a rib, sparks of stardust? And what did it all begin with? In a word, a crash, a moment of perfect silence? Some questions are so grandiose, they deserve more than just an answer. In their search for explanations, three curious researchers are on their way on a fantastic journey and turn the theatre upside down. In the shadow lies an entire universe, in the folds of a curtain they encounter the dangerous world of giant lizards and in the spotlight the molecules dance. They encounter order and chaos, defy all contradictions and dare the impossible. With the help of soft and round things, fingers, colors and loud noises, the three invent what has so far been forgotten in schoolbooks. Together with the audience, they immerse themselves in stories that are so big that perhaps only the little toe appears under the curtain.

For children from age 6 (and the whole family)
