Stories are all around us, they come to us. Parents and grandparents tell them, we read books, watch movies, they'll even find their way to us via computer games. So why should not theatre "itself" come to us as well?
Exactly! This is what we do!
We bring exciting theatre to your classroom. The t i c - theatre in classroom.
Enjoy inspiring legends, myths, fairy tales and stories without the added stress of having to travel. Instead you and your pupils
will be treated to a unique experience. The age old European tradition of active storytelling combines telling the story with the art of performing. It's not only a story it's a "tell 'n play"!
Sit on the floor in a semi circle, on chairs or desks (if it's allowed), invite another class and let the show begin! No complicated technology and equipment, no special effects - we got all the gadgets we need: eyes, ears and imagination.
Let the fantastic adventure begin in your very own classroom!
What time is it? It's t i c - time!
Antje is a talented dramaturge and pedagogue who is able to engage even the shyest of students. She is an excellent listener, and has a keen eye/ear for particular needs a specific class may have.

tic - the sound a jewel makes dropping to the floor. You wouldn’t wait to pick it up, would you?! My students responded to the stories that Antje’s performance had brought alive in their presence like a treasure, with eyes glittering. They were actively engaged as if in a treasure hunt. It’s a dream come true for me as a teacher as well. Inspiring students from all walks of life to go to the theaters by introducing them to it in an easily accessible way during a regular, yet memorable lesson.

Storytelling with a twist......a delightful introduction to the elusive brothers Grimm, enjoyed by children and adults alike. Audience participation turns the old tradition of story circles into an exercise in communication and life skills for the modern world.
