BIG BOX & kleines Orchester
On stage there is a big box – is it a huge package, a phone booth, a work shop, an elevator, a spaceship … ? There are street lights growing out of it. A tiny conductor slides across the stage and sets the beat. A couple is dancing. A dog’s leash takes the hat off the head. The box turns over and decides to be a table.
What kind of powers are putting things in motion? Let’s follow the stories that are being told by the objects! Between manipulation and autonomy everything on stage starts to interact with each other: the light, the music, the people and the objects. It’s the power of imagination that a box can be much more than just a box …
florschütz & döhnert gave an insight into the development of “BIG BOX & small orchestra” at the international figuren.theater.festival 2021 via livestream from the Erlangen Experimentiertheater. After this tryout in May and the outdoor version “Die Kiste” in July 2021, they now present their new production in full length.
