A Schocolate Life (6+) I Coproduction

«Justice is quite complicated, especially when it comes to something as fine as chocolate. Three clownlike performers try their best and almost overlook the simplest solution.»

Three clownlike performers struggle to share a piece of chocolate fairly among themselves. However, things are not as easy as they seem, because the three of them have to overcome a few challenges. Their different ideas of justice, the task of inventing fair rules and, above all, their own desire for more and more chocolate. The three protagonists playfully juggle the big question of justice without realizing that they are moving further and further away from the simple solution to the problem: How about simply dividing the chocolate into three pieces of equal size? What is really fair? Why is it sometimes so difficult to be fair? Why don’t those who have too much give so that everyone has enough? So that everyone can be on the «chocolate side of life»?

Theater Fallalpha was founded in Zurich in 1998. The group sees itself as a family troupe, and it produces professional theater for children from 3 to 13 years. The plays are mainly developed during rehearsals. Research and improvisation phases last several weeks, the material is created, and it then serves as the basis for the theater script and production.
