A play about the courage to trust one's own eyes for everyone from 6 years of age
M O N S T R A show an experiment that would not have been possible without their audience: In the beginning there were gifts that M O N S T R A received from children to turn them into a theatre scene. They showed this first scene to children and asked them: What did you see? Based on their descriptions and fantasies a play was invented. So many children brought in ideas for costumes and stage design, painted pictures and fantasized about light and music. Slowly but surely a play was created that M O N S T R A could never have thought up on their own.
Beyond correctly recognized and misunderstood, "Is it true?" is about the joyful handling of different perspectives and what happens when they become reality. A declaration of love to theatre, to inventing, interpreting and puzzling together.
M O N S T R A was awarded the "Karfunkel", the Frankfurt Children's and Youth Theatre Prize of the City of Frankfurt in 2020.
