Improvised tenderness | Botanical encounters with fastfood theater

Saturday, 24. June 2023 - Saturday, 24. June 2023

The fastfood theater meets a sensitive flora full of love and tragedy. Improvised scenes full of humor about flora.

The fastfood theater meets a wide variety of plants in the botanical garden. Our relationship with them is full of emotion and drama. Some conquer our garden as weeds, and others die out quietly. There are plants that we would give our lives for on the mountain, and plants that we destroy with poison.

Improvised stories with and about these sensitive creatures that surround us everywhere and yet are so unknown to us: the fastfood theater explores what they mean to us in spontaneous scenes, songs and games.

This time, audience input will also include plants from a collection in the botanical garden, which can be selected for the show. With their art of improvisation, the actresses and actors create entertaining images and dreams in a humorous way, which, like a plant, can unfold from a single suggestion. An auspicious journey into the green world of the evolution, which thrives on surprises and spontaneity.
