Music and Dance Performance with a Water Sound Installation

In The Fish Who Found the Sea, the magnificent cloak room of the National Theatre in Munich is transformed into an underwater world. The audience encounters a group of fish dancing their way through the sea. Among them is a small fish that thinks so hard about its ability to swim that it panics and no longer knows how to move at all. Only after a long search does he realise he is exactly in the right place. The production is based on a story by Alan Watts, a British philosopher and writer. The Fish Who Found the Sea is the first and only story he wrote for children. Central to all his works is an examination of the conditions for contentment and happiness.
