Fanny and Alexander grow up in the lively world of a theatre family... Until their father dies and their mother marries a Bishop. From that point onwards, generations, truths and lifestyles collide and a bitter battle ensues between the children and their stepfather. The production tells the story of two children who use a magic lantern to try and discover their place in the adult world.

This year's in-house production by Schaubude Berlin interprets Ingmar Bergman's opulent film classic with a modern Laterna Magica. Iduna Hegen, Karoline Hoffmann and Pierre Schäfer tell the story of two children in search of their place in the adult world at a magic video table with shadow and paper theatre, with a pop-up book and projections, with their bodies and voices. An intense story about truth and lies, reality and fiction.


Note on accessibility: Large-format video projections are used in the production. Flickering sequences are used at one point. Loud music is played at certain points. The themes of death and corporal punishment are dealt with.
