Science for kids. New Storytelling as a part of PlayOn!
Alex must have missed the time. There's no other explanation for why he doesn't show up for the performance - he's usually so reliable. Waiting for him isn't an option, after all the audience is already there. So what to do? Without further ado, the props assistant helps out to pass the time until Alex arrives. But when he finally gets in touch with her, things turn out very differently, because Alex seems to be in trouble. To make things right, audience and theater people must work together and answer time-related questions to keep Alex out of trouble.Together with the Circus of Knowledge at the Johannes Kepler University, students from the Linz University of Art and the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria, the department for young audiences of the Landestheater Linz has created a story in which questions about time are answered in a playful and researching manner.
