A project of the Junge Staatsoper in collaboration with the Comenius Grundschule and the grund_schule der künste (UdK).
The project examines the behaviour of characters from the fairy-tale »Little Red Riding Hood« in conjunction with abuse prevention methods. Under the slogan »Defend the Wolf!« we consider alternative courses of action which Little Red Riding Hood could take against the wolf. Whether it's fighting back with hot sausage water, as in a lesser-known version by the Brothers Grimm, or Little Blue Riding Hood coming to the rescue - personal narratives of self-determination and self-assertion are brought to the stage in the form of music, theatre and dance.
Students of the grund_schule der künste, a constituent part of the Universität der Künste, participate in the artistic debate over the theme of the little girl and the big bad wolf. They aim to find out, for example, how many different ways a wolf can howl when Little Red Riding Hood puts up a fight!
The results has been presented to the public in a performance.
This project is supported by the Berliner Projektfonds Kulturelle Bildung.
The project was submitted to participate in the contest › KINDER ZUM OLYMP hosted by Kulturstiftung der Länder.
