WAS TUN! HOLIDAY PROGRAM

SHADOW THEATER
"What was once upon a time, and what is now?"

Tue, June 6, Wed, June 7, Thu, June 8, Fri, June 9, Sat, June 10 and Tue, June 13, 2017, 10am–4.30pm

What’s going on in the wild forests? Which colors do we see in dreams? Why do painters paint themselves at work? Which stories do the pictures tell? What might they have to do with our own lives? And what do we call "picture perfect"—the pictures themselves or the stories behind them?


"Well, if that isn’t just picture perfect!" was what art lovers over a century ago liked to exclaim when they looked at "beautiful" works of art. How do these pictures affect us today? That’s only one of the questions we will explore in a shadow theater project designed especially for the exhibition "Picture Perfect. Views from the 19th Century". You’re invited to join us as we look for those "picture perfect" moments in the stories and in the art. Closely examining pictures of landscapes, people, and situations of life—on the stage, in the studio—we will discuss what we see and the myths and fairy tales the art evokes. Then we will weave the strands of these narratives together for our own shadow theater performance.

A shadow theater production is a full-day project. Please bring your own snacks and drinks! Please ask your parents to sign the informed consent form and bring it on the day of the program!

We will meet in the museum lobby at 9.45am.

For children ages 6 through 12
Costs: 2,50 Euro / p.P. plus admission
Free admission for children and teenagers under 18.

Tickets are sold at the cash desks inside the Lenbachhaus, online and at the München Ticket reservation kiosks.

WAS TUN! SUMMER HOLIDAY PROGRAM

FIGURENTHEATERWERKSTATT

When a picture breaks the mold … and the characters end up on stage!
Daily except mondays from Fri, August 4 to Sun, August 20, 2017, 12 noon-5.30pm
at Lenbachhaus

Is that cow in love? Did he swipe the bouquet? Is that person in the portrait someone else than we’ve always thought? What are the secret mysteries that loom in the Lenbachhaus’s paintings?

And how did the museum come by these works? These are the questions and stories we explore in our puppet theater workshop, and this summer it’ll be all about the museum’s collection. Each project day will be dedicated to a different work. We ask our own questions and tell new stories we present on the stage. We build and paint puppets and set decorations or turn our story about the selected work of art into a live performance. The pictures we’ll take of our productions will add to our growing collection on view in the museum’s garden.

Performances are held at 5pm in the garden. Admission to the performances is free for all parents, friends, and other spectators.

Conception and realization: Mirja Reuter and Florian Gass in collaboration with the Lenbachhaus’s art education specialists
