Lübbenau | Shadow forest

A poetic boat trip through the nocturnal water forest

When night falls over Lübbenau, illuminated barges are ready to transport the audience into a fairytale world. Visitors glide almost silently over the water, deeper and deeper into the Spreewald. Along the rivers they pass unique plays of light, fascinating dream images and shadow plays. Raven-people as shifters between times await the travellers at the light gates and lead them through a fantastic world: poetic, sensual, surreal.
With its subtle and quiet imagery, Theater Anu provides a new approach to the Grimm's fairy tale world and to the primal reasons of being human. It takes us back to a time when wishing still helped and trees could still speak.
