Documentation Licca Line
An open-air theater with 40 young people on stilts and 70 youthful musicians.
“Licca Line – a Long Ride to the Fabulous Damasia”!
The open-air theater “Licca Line” is a long ride on the “Long Ride”, the raft slide that the rafters once traveled. 40 youthful actors on stilts and more than 70 young people as musicians transform the main square into the long ago sunken place “Damasia”.
The audience is in the middle of it all when seven youthful rafters search for the way back to Landsberg. This hero’s journey leads through the legendary world of the Lechrain. There the heroes have to prove themselves when they encounter the Truden, Hojemännle or the man without a head. The theater “Die Stelzer” has developed an open-air theater with impressive pictures and the magic of theater on stilts together with the young people.
