The Gummy Bears’ Great War


Batisfera (Italy)

At dawn, the nation of the Gummy Bears declares war against the nation of the Dinosaurs. The Gummies will prepare for war, there will be a battle, and the Dinosaurs will win the fight. But even if the outcome is tragically obvious, the question remains: What makes the candies so obstinate? The Gummy Bears’ Great War is an object-theatre show that takes place on a table, with real candies, small lights, and few spectators. An existential tragicomedy about our search for meaning.

‘Perfect marriage of dramaturgy and design…a heart-wrenching, mouth-watering, theatrical experience’ (BroadwayDnaBlog.Substack.com).
