Theater Marabu


Theater Young FFT Theatre & Performance

Two people arrive with their clean-up cart, meaning to straighten everything out before the theatre starts. But suddenly, one of them is missing! He just skips work, and all the chores remain. No amount of begging and pleading, no admonishing will help. But when work turns to play, it becomes pleasure. Suddenly, everything is as easy as ABC, and it is done in time, before the theatre can start. But hasn’t it yet begun already? Two players tell a tale of self-determination and about the joy of playing in BlauPause with only a few objects, accompanied by live music.


Theater Marabu, set up in 1993 by Tina Jücker and Claus Overkamp, is a professional independent theatre for a young audience with their own venue at the “Brotfabrik” cultural centre in Bonn. Apart from aesthetically exceptional and ambitious productions aimed at a young audience, theatre projects with children and youths as well as the artistic support of up-and-coming artists are the emphases of their work.
