One night, two world premieres in Berlin & New York

Digital Fairy Tales: Water Stories (Wassermärchen) is a continuation of the Digital Fairy Tales series which takes inspiration and direction from German folk tales collected by Franz Xaver von Schoenwerth, a civil servant and archivist in the mid 19th century.  Giants and water people cavort with peasants, royalty and crafty creatures in underwater worlds, castles and forests. 

These stories were created once upon a time, long before our digital reality and were collected and held by von Schoenwerth in his archive in Regensburg, Germany.  Contemporary creatives have brought the stories into a New World and offer us an opportunity to look back in time through their unique and varied lenses.
