eine kleine idee vom allein sein

Info

Relaxed Performance // Without language – for a young audience ages 5 and up

Solitude can hold the key to something very wonderful and useful. If you welcome it with open arms, it comes smiling joyfully and brings inspiration and serenity. But if you are afraid of loneliness, you are afraid of yourself. Then everything is gray, you stand with your eyes downcast and can’t get a clear thought.

“eine kleine idee vom allein sein” is a musictheatre piece for a young audience ages 5 and up. An immersive space that explores loneliness in all its facets. Enter a space where you can do anything and come by for tea with solitude.

“eine kleine idee vom allein sein” deals with stories of loneliness and powerlessness that are increasingly surfacing in young people today, individually, as well as globally. Generation Alpha is the first generation to grow up in a globalized, digitalized world where community seems locally disconnected. What does this mean for social togetherness? How can a new togetherness look like, in which individuals can respect borders, communicate needs and live together as equals in harmony with nature? Is this the goal of humanity, or where are we heading?

In a prototype that we developed in May 2023, we were able to test mechanisms under the name “AIN”.
