Gilsa | The Great Journey

In collaboration with Theater Magica

3.500 Candles300 old suitcases. Suitcase towers, suitcase fountains, visitors' suitcases - everyone embarks alone on The Great Journey through the labyrinth. 3 hours of stars falling from the sky and of characters revealing their stories – with their eyes, their voices, their bodies.

A sea of lights flowing over town squares and parks, through tunnels and great halls. For those who venture inside, it becomes a playful labyrinth of lights full of poetic theatrical moments. Eight characters tell us of their dreams, of being stuck, and of their little islands of happiness – a poetic play on the way to the centre.

Let yourself be enchanted by magical images, by the expressive play and the poetic stories. Linger until you’re carried out into the night again.

The event will also take place in light rain (except in the event of severe weather, 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 due to weather conditions before one hour of performance time has been completed, the ticket entitles the holder to admission to another performance date of THE GREAT JOURNEY, subject to availability.
