World première based on the illustrated book 'The bear who wasn't there' by Orien Lavie, translated by Harry Rowohlt

Once upon a time there was an itch. It scratched itself and suddenly became – a bear! A bear that wasn’t there before. ‘Are you me?’ asked the Bear, and set out to find the answer. In his search he meets the easy-going Mountain Goat, the lackadaisical Salamander and the penultimate Perfect Penguin. He listens to his own silence and follows its sound, delights in flowers and lovely thoughts, and finally finds – himself. ‘The bear that wasn’t there’ tells the exciting and philosophical tale of the search for one’s own identity and the joy of self-discovery. It encourages listeners to take an open-minded, curious and relaxed view of the world. Now the story will receive its theatrical première at the 2017 Beethovenfest. For children from the age of four.
