Light and shadow set off to create a world of light and dark in the big universe. These two elements could not be more different, but together they create beautiful images. As quickly as their images appear, however, they disappear again and are transformed into ever-changing creations of fantasy. In the interplay of light and darkness, sounds and silence, stillness and movement, a dream theatre full of magic and beauty is created.
The T-Werk production Das kleine Licht bin ich (I Am the Little Light) is the first joint production between the dancer Laura Heinecke and musician Nicolas Schulze. A fairy-tale world that challenges the creative imagination of children and shows how new imagery can be created with the simplest of means by combining dance, music and live projections.
It was extremely stimulating to immerse ourselves in this small light show. … The graphic, clear images of the production stayed in our minds for a long time afterwards and even a few days later, both young and old were still taking about it.

The play’s spell succeeds, enchanting not only the children but the adults too – with such a simple and unique dream that the stars are brought to earth for a moment. Kultursegler.de
