How much are we Robin Hood and do we want to be? What weapons are allowed for a just cause? And what is just at all? Where does our complex world today go beyond the scope of our template?
"Robin and the Hoods" tackles questions of birthright, distribution and justice with the King of Thieves - Robin Hood - at its back. Playfully, with electropunk music and dancing in tights, pulk fiction test the rebellion for people 8 years and older. They set out on the trail of its historical reality and, without moralistic pointing fingers, negotiate the burning question of how a just life can be achieved for all. And with how much emphasis people can, must, should, may, want to stand up for their ideas and convictions so that they are heard.
pulk fiktion is a performance group founded in 2007 and based in Cologne. A heterogeneous group of artists from the fields of theater, film, music, performance, video art and interactive media works in different constellations on productions for children, young people and adults.
After all performances, there will be several follow-up conversations lasting a maximum of 90 minutes. The talks will be divided up on the spot. For this guest performance, there will always be a conversation in DGS (or with an interpreter) as well as spatially accessible offers. Information about the presenters can be found here.
