The trilogy that started with NOAH and continued with MOSES now proceeds with a project series that tackles religious thematic stories. For the third part of the cooperation with young people that have fled to or are native to Munich we go back to the origins of human history. In the creation myth a world view is constructed, in which an Almighty Father creates a man as the first human and from his ribs creates a woman for him, who is responsible for the subsequent expulsion from paradise. This Christian story-telling tradition struggles here with the Jewish and Islamic way of representing our origin. Beginning with biographies of young people searching for their place in the world, EVA UND ADAM asks the question about a new start in a strange world and the possibility of an emancipated co-habitation, not just for the two genders, but also for different religious communities. The musical theatre project combines music and arrangements from Joseph Haydn’s Die Schöpfung with new compositions and musical ideas of the young people.
