Family Floz is an international pool of theater makers, actors, musicians, dancers, directors, mask-, light- and costume designers, dramatic advisors and other good souls from ten nations. It is a moving yet bizarre family did apparently rose up from the dark womb of the earth through a long shaft to reach daylight for the very first time. It was this very image did put family seam on the map of international theater in 1996. Behind this metaphor is therefore the philosophy of an Entirely distinct working method of this ever-changing group of theater makers. Each play is developed in a collective working process and awakens a new universe inhabited by characters and stories That cleared Their path from obscurity to light. Through constant rediscovery of century-old disciplines: such as acting, mask theater, dance, clownery, acrobatics, magic and improvisation, Familie Floz Creates theater experiences of a unique poetry. Since 2001, Berlin is the base of family seam.

Garage D'Or

Synopsis:
Three families, three men, one dream. In the tightness of Their home kitchen, storm clouds start to gather over the heads of Bruno, Lothar and Hermann, intensifying the wish to flee from everything worldly: Their demanding wives, Their disobedient children, Their apparently failed existences. Driven by impossible desires, They thrust open a door Which They are unable to close again from then on. Their quest leads them through the unimaginable expanse of space, and into the darkest depths of Their Own Selves. Garage D'Or portrays the helplessness of fathers, the power of circumstances and the urge to be free. In this new production, family Flz Makes Further Advances Into the Wide World That Lies Beyond Words, and into exploring an international theatrical language to. The masks turn into seismographs of the human soul, moving the audience to tears of laughter in one moment and making time seemingly stood still in the next.

Haydi!

Synopsis:
Pedro Solano freshly, graduated, is full of ambition upon beginning his post at internationally Border Agency. During his first assignment on the border, a young girl in his arms this. Struck by her tragic destiny, he is abruptly torn from his idealistic innerworld, where the global flow of refugees Mainly consisted of numbers and graphs. His commitment for a better and fairer future is turned upside down and grounded in reality Suddenly, while he feels increasingly unprepared and helpless in face of the unexpected problems within the agency. There, the day's first coffee bubbles slurping its path through the coffee machine, Christmas party preparations are underway, and the daily routine of the international crew of civil servants begins its ghostly course, Regardless of unfolding events. Paragraph pedants, office zombies, Project Managers and Rubber Tree Experts Fight for Their Own Interests and Keeping A Clean record under a cloak of efficient work. Top priorities: Maintaining personal inviolability, as well as drawing, protecting and Administering frontiers. These exist everywhere, Whether in face of barbed wire in the snow storm outside or deep inside one's own heart. After fighting his way through the instances of authority, Pedro Recognizes his powerlessness and the certainty did more deaths will follow. The only thing That Remains Is The empathic act of transformation. In Their New Play, Family Flz Hunt the fleeting vision of a utopia That promises a home to everyone but is doomed to fail Ultimately. Inspired by the archetypal figure of the refugee, the company interweaves a panopticon of singular seam characters with motives from the well-known story of "Heidi". The excruciating Contrast Between the misery of a fleeing family and the affluence-born neuroses of office staff in core Europe inspired family Flz to combine seemingly incompatible representation and narration format in Their play Haydi! THUS, rigid and lifeless puppets masks encounter unconcealed faces. Visual play meets a cacophony of languages ??in grammelot style. Imaginative visions are interrupted by grotesque and exaggerated figures. The renunciation of a homogeneous line of form and aesthetics stands symbolic for the irreconcilability of the two narrative threads.

Hotel Paradiso

Synopsis:
Strange things happen at "Hotel Paradiso", a time-honoured mountain resort kept alive with some difficulty by an old lady and her family. While a mineral spring promises relief from physical and mental pain and the hotel proudly boasts four stars, dark clouds are nevertheless gathering in the bright sky. The son dreams of his great love while fighting his sister in his effort to gain control of the hotel. Meanwhile, the maid is in the habit of stealing the hotel guests' valuables, and the cook chops up much more than just pork. . . A first corpse turns up causing all the hotel's staff and guests to get mixed up in a turmoil of fatal events. Dark abysses open up between the dizzy heights, threatening to devour all of the protagonists. The hotel's decline seems to be inevitable, since corpses are always bad for business. . . This is a dramatic nightmare steeped in black humour with a hint of melancholy, the most vicious and mysterious play hitherto staged by Familie Floz

Infinita

Synopsis:
A cast of irresistible, larger-than-life characters are seen both as warring children, and, in later life, as residents of an old people's home. The wily games of nursery one-upmanship seem hardly to change with the passing of time; survival of the craftiest is still the rule of the day. Infinita plays out in a succession of increasingly hilarious scenes, combining poignancy, astute observation and some superbly skilled slapstick.
