“A musical and burlesque scare story about power, arbitrary decisions and resistance”
A family of artists touring the country with their travelling theatre, telling stories and singing tales. Their performances are targeted at common people, simple, direct and blunt, humorous and grotesque.
Today, they act out ‘KOHLHAAS’, the story of a devout horse trader who lived a peaceful life at his own farm with his faithful wife and his five well-behaved, hardworking children. Until one day, a little incident changed his life – as well as the lives of many others – and his sense of justice made him a bandit and murderer.
‘Agora Theater’ was founded in 1980 in the German-speaking community of Belgium. The company’s typical style combines ruthlessness with poetic elements. ’Theater Marabu’ was founded in 1993 as an independent theatre in Bonn, Germany.
