The witch – for centuries she has haunted our fairy tales and myths. She was persecuted for a long time, and even today the term witch is used as a derogatory term for a malicious, unpleasant or ugly woman.

FEAR THE WOMEN IN THE DARK! revolves around the witch, the sorceress, the malicious seductress and child eater but also the sexually independent, unyielding, knowing woman.

On a summer night in a park by a pond, Follow the Rabbit shows an electronic opera, a dark comic spectacle about women: acting, acrobatics and singing mix just as atmospherically as nature, bodies, voices and music.
