Theater Heidelberg: Erich Kästner
Premiere on October 8, 2021.

Kritik: Anne-Catherine Simon, Die Presse:„Unterschiedliche Genres mischend, gibt [Xell.s]Live Musikder Aufführung den Puls, die Stimmung vor. Sie konterkariert aber auch hinterhältig sanft das grelle Bühnengeschehen. Wie der Schnee, der so oft still herunterschwebt. Das Sanft und das Rasende – auch von dieser Spannung lebt die Aufführung.Check it out here ...
