The PHOENIX AND THE GOLDEN VALLEY world wants to be an offer in these challenging times to make strengthening resources and inner connections sensually tangible.
In an entertaining way, it wants to invite you into constructive spaces of experience that encourage, awaken joie de vivre and promote optimism. Beyond the usual horror scenarios, it wants to open up to positive ideas for the future. And for a connecting togetherness – human to human and human and nature / cosmos.
The readings that have already taken place online and above all the PHÖNIX adventure evening 2020 at the Volksbühne in Cologne have shown that these goals can be easily achieved with this material, even with a broader audience with different age structures.
Fairy tales immediately speak to our emotional levels, our heart. They awaken the childlike in us and make us open to receiving inspiration. PHOENIX AND THE GOLDEN VALLEY wants to give the audience a journey into bright, inner worlds. At the same time, it conveys valuable knowledge about crisis management and resources in a playful way.
The phoenix bird sets off for the far away “golden valley”. It is said that paradise is supposed to be here. On the way, he is struck by lightning and falls. With broken wings, he is about to give up when the mysterious river woman takes care of him. Phoenix now embarks on a journey that not only brings him acquaintance with all sorts of forest dwellers, but also a completely new experience of himself. It’s a story of crash, chaos and resurgence. And the good forces of life that can be discovered by every human being.
“Phoenix and the Golden Valley” will be available as a printed book and as a digital download. Also as an audio book. This contains the read form of the story and a version with atmospheric sounds and music, which was produced and composed by the cockpit crew for this project. The Music will be released as an Album.
