A Production of                           Theater Junge Generation






















"The Israeli puppeteer Ariel Doron staged a meta-theatrical puppet massacre of the most eerie kind that got under your skin. Since Vegard Vinge's work in Berlin's Volksbühnen-Prater, nothing like this has been experienced. A grandiose Grand Guignol - and a surprise across generations and divisions of this new start."

                   Thomas Irmer, Theater der Zeit

"Visiting Hours are Over" is a social experiment, a performance which confronts the audience with their role as passive viewers of atrocities.  It explores the thin line between show and reality, and the associations, imagination and actions, that inanimate objects can bring up in the audience.

Review by Tobias Pruewer (Contains Spoilers):



The show has been invited to festivals such as Figurentheatre Festival Erlangen, Imaginale Festival Stuttgart, FIDENA Festival in Bochum, UNIDRAM Festival Potsdam, Klaipeda International Puppetry Festival in Lithuania.. And was selected for 'Augenblick Mal´ Germany´s Bienalle for Youth and Children Theatre in Berlin.
