Five and IT!
A production in cooperation with the Düsseldorf Festival
Five children of a pair of researchers need to be their natural-scientific uncle because their parents are doing climate research. Here you will find a sand fairy. The infrequent fairy must now fulfill the wishes of the children, which every time at the end of the day lose their effect, or disappear. So the children want what they just want: a lot of chocolate. At the end of the day, the stomachs of the brothers and sisters rebel and they begin to think about their next wish better. Next, they want to fill the human race from flying, but have forgotten that their wings have disappeared at sunset.
They still learn what it means to be "God" until they have to realize that their parents are in real trouble and they need the last wishes for their salvation.
But the Sandfee has already landed in the experimental lab of Uncle Woland and the 5 children are in need of explanation.
A story about calculable and unpredictable, about science and fairy tales, and about mastering difficulties.
To the music
David Paul Graham composes music for 5 children singing soloists a professional singer, a singing actress and a great children's choir.
The choir has a special task: it has the function of an "acoustic stage design". The sound of the sea, the wind blowing and the passing clouds, the train ride, the echo in the cave, and even the interior of the house. You can easily imagine a squeaky door, but how could a table or cabinet sound?
