The actors of the Nemetski Theater and an international production team led by the German director Tilman Hecker ponder the future of the planet. The plot centers around the beautiful German fairy tale “Die Regentrude” (The Rainmaiden) by Theodor Storm. Literary and philosophical works are woven into the fabric of the production.
Today, we often talk about the parallel existence of multiple universes, and these myths and fantasies are reflected in our films and in literature. What are we – a real world or someone's fantasy? A part of nature that must obey its laws or the masters of the natural world? What will happen to us, what will happen to our home? These are the questions we want to talk about on our theater stage.
