GundBerg (A)

A Tree Walks Through the Woods

Wednesday, June 9, 2021, 9:00 a.m.
Ages 4+
Duration: 45 minutes


Two lumberjacks at work, eating their lunch, leaving an apple core ...
Ewald, a young apple tree, does not want to put down his roots yet. He would much rather do somersaults. “ What to do and where to go?”, he cries into the woods. And as we all know, what goes around, comes around. “Go!”, the woods call back and so Ewald goes ...
In the tree nursery, he meets Waldemar and Waldtraud, stumbles over Hofrat Morsch and dances.
Yes, if you let go and take a break, you find your place in the world. And Ewald? He becomes rooted to the spot ...

A story of individualism and idyll, enacted with everday objects and figures, tree bark, and wooden instruments.
