Bad Dürkheim | Water myths


Unfortunately, the city of Bad Dürkheim has to postpone the event. The new date will be announced later. Tickets already purchased will remain valid or can be returned where they were purchased. We thank you for your understanding.


In keeping with the world-building of the water stories told, this time the construction site of the "Salinaium" spa in Bad Dürkheim will be played! We are delighted about this special venue!

Theatre ANU transforms everyday places into mystical water worlds. The visually stunning production tells stories of dreams, a night sea voyage that tells of infertility, the water of life and the incompatibility of man and woman.
Whether the story of the mermaid Undine and her lover Hans, or a completely unknown version of the Frog Prince, when night falls, the play begins:
A beautiful woman - half goddess, half toad - does her work on the stream of life. A fisherman consumes himself for love of his mermaid. A water woman appears behind a wall of 400 water glasses. Her movements are reflected in the water like chimeras. In a round dance of kaleidoscopic images, a girl dances in search of water, while her husband goes on a pilgrimage and a lamenting prince consort threatens to sink his silver ball in the well.

In the new poetic world of Theater ANU, whimsical characters cavort with their crazy, fantastic stories and ignite a nocturnal rush of images.

The event will also take place in case of light rain (except thunderstorms, storms etc.). We recommend sturdy shoes and rainwear. Please refrain from using umbrellas. There are not always paved paths. Unfortunately, this means that the production can only be experienced with limited accessibility. If the event has to be cancelled for weather reasons before one hour of the performance has been completed, the ticket entitles the holder to admission to another performance date of WASSERMYTHEN, subject to availability.
