Fennymore oder Wie man Dackel im Salzmantel macht

An antidictator theater by Kirsten Reinhardt & Sebastian Mauksch

»Say YES! Yes or Nice! You have the choice! Or do the Monbijou da-da-dance? Make up your mind, Fennymore!«

 

What is this strange little town where it rains all the time and everyone has to wear a rain hat? Where Doctor Uhrengut – mayor, doctor, hat monopolist and gymnastics club chairman all in one – is constantly singing the praises of the brave new world? It’s election time and Doctor Uhrengut now wants to be mayor for L-L-L-life. Fennymore, that is the childlike main character of the story, is also allowed to vote. But before that, he wanders through the small town and meets Aunt Else in her pub »Zum Dackel im Salzmantel«, Fizzy from the drinks warehouse, the sports teacher Mr. Muckenthaler, the stubborn bicycle Monbijou and – wait! – was that death back there?

»Fennymore oder Wie man Dackel im Salzmantel macht« is an interactive acting performance with the audience as the main character. The stage is a walk-on and experienceable art installation with sound-composed light spaces. At the end is the mayoral election for life. The outcome depends on the result of the election and is decided anew at each performance.

 

Kirsten Reinhardt works as a freelance writer. Her debut »Fennymore oder Wie man Dackel im Salzmantel macht« was awarded the Oldenbug Children’s and Young People’s Book Prize in 2009 as an unpublished manuscript and translated into five languages. Since then, two more children’s novels and a picture book have been published by Carlsen Verlag.
Sebastian Mauksch is a freelance director and dramaturge for performance theater. He directed the youth venues of the Volksbühne am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz, and his works with P14 made guest appearances at numerous festivals. From 2008 he staged world premieres at Ballhaus Ost with texts by David Lindemann, Helene Hegemann and Anne Tismer. For the Berliner Festspiele he is researching the art of adolescence.
