Thalias Kompagnons (DE)
Wenn Ferdinand nachts schlafen geht
Little Ferdinand cannot fall asleep. In the dark, his room is so eerie: the dresser turns into a monster, the curtains shape into a fish swimming through the wallpaper, and why can he fly all of a sudden? Encouraged and accompanied by his cat, Ferdinand sets out that night in search of the great magician behind these transformations. And makes an intriguing discovery …
With collages created live on stage and enchanting accordion music, Thalias Kompagnons bring Ferdinand’s room to life and open up a view of a magical cosmos in which everything seems possible. A dreamy declaration of love to the adventures of fantasy.
Thalias Kompagnons alias Joachim Torbahn and Tristan Vogt toured the world for more than 30 years as an internationally successful puppet theatre. Their repertoire ranged from cryptic opera and classic versions to object and painting theatre performances, with which they achieved a novel synthesis of visual art and theatre.
“Wenn Ferdinand nachts schlafen geht” (When Ferdinand Goes to Sleep at Night) was the last joint production, which could be performed far too infrequently due to the early death of Joachim Torbahn in December 2021. With Kathrin Blüchert taking over paper and scissors, there is now, after all, the opportunity to immerse oneself in the dreamlike pictorial worlds and experience them on stage.
