SchaubudeBerlin has invited Alessandro Maggioni to be part of their 2021 new production, crafting figures and objects, and realizing the modular tables that made the interactive show possible. The object modern esthetic is deeply rooted in the world of silhouettes and paper theaters figures, creating an arc that bridges Ingmar Bergman´s classic with the new rendition of director Nis Søgaard.

“Fanny and Alexander grow up in the lively world of a theatre family… Until their father dies and their mother marries a Bishop.  From that point onwards, generations, truths and lifestyles collide and a bitter battle ensues between the children and their stepfather. The production tells the story of two children who use a magic lantern to try and discover their place in the adult world.”
