family creatures


a performance for everyone aged 8 and over


Together with a licking tongue, a melodramatic curtain, a dog, three swans and a big sister, we set off in search of the oddities of F*A*M*I*L*Y. How do you actually put up with it together? Musician Laura Landergott delivers songs between melancholic electronica and post-punk. A family piece for everyone who doesn’t always know what F*A*M*I*L*Y actually is and whether they’d rather run away or sit down with it.


PINSKER+BERNHARDT are Janna Pinsker and Wicki Bernhardt. Founded at the Institute for Applied Theater Studies in Giessen, the duo combines the lines of post-dramatic theater, choreography and performance for a young and cross-generational audience.
With an absurd-fragmentary and playful-confrontational aesthetic, they project social phenomena and collective biographies into spatial arrangements and objects. Their cooperation partners include the Künstler:innenhaus Mousonturm, the Junge Nationaltheater Mannheim, the FFT Düsseldorf and the Theater an der Parkaue Berlin.
PINSKER+BERNHARDT were awarded the FAUST Theater Prize in the category  »Performers in Theater for Young Audiences« in 2023.
