PAULA’s REISEN / PAULA’S TRAVELS
Paula experiences unimaginable worlds in her dream. Paul Maar’s playful picture book sends the little girl on a journey of discovery through strange worlds; round, red, and cornered. In every world they try to adjust Paula and make her ‘fit’. Time and again Paula resists the pressure of others in order to be accepted as she is.
A witty and imaginative plea for tolerance and diversity, openness and individuality.
Paul Maar (* 1937) is one of the best-known German children’s book authors. He became famous as the inventor of “Sams” and his very own version of the fairy tales from 1001 Nights, “Lippels Traum”.
He received the special prize of the German Youth Literature Prize for his work.
The show was critically acclaimed and described as:
“A fantastically beautiful, colourful and multi-layered, intergenerationally illuminating theatrical pleasure. A better journey is impossible.”
And “..visually stunning and imaginative. A lyrically beautiful adventure…reaches deeply into the fantasy box.”
