Welcome to the website of Melanie Florschütz and Michael Döhnert

This summer we are working on a new theatre show for children from 4 years up: Electric Shadows will have his premiere on 15 September 2018 in the SCHAUBUDE Berlin. We’re looking forward to show our new theatre production this autumn in Germany and in December at the festival À tout âge in Quimper, France. In January-February 2019 our co-producers invite us to Luxembourg, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and to the Festival MOMIX in Kingersheim, France!

Rawums (:) has the pleasure to perform at the festival La Grande Echelle at the Montfort Théâtre in Paris and A hole in the air and everywhere in Le Revest-les-Eaux, France.

Take a look at our Tour dates.

Electric Shadows

This is a strange kind of machine: it rolls on and off, forwards, backwards, it shakes, it hums, it murmurs, it squeaks and it rattles like a train about to leave. Everything turns and transforms. Things as we know them start to behave strangely and develop a life of their own. Even the shadows detach themselves from the objects and go for a walk.

Welcome to a fantastic workshop that sharpens the senses!
40 minutes of rotations with light and shadows, sounds and music.

Ein Loch ist meistens rundEin Loch ist meistens rundTheatre for children aged 4+

Ein Loch ist meistens rund
Un petit trou de rien du tout
A hole in the air and everywhere

„Have you ever sawed a hole? And then? Was it gone?“
florschütz & döhnert are researching the phenomenon of holes. They are making holes. The more holes they are making, the bigger the possibilities that are surprisingly opening up. This is because a hole is a door that leads elsewhere: a tiny hole is enough to make you an explorer. With a good sense of humour florschütz & döhnert start out on an expedition into the realm of imagination. They are playing with dimensions and with the illusion of it. A magic theatre play, mysteriously and exciting as a detective story, with lots of space for the important aspects of holes: you can’t really grasp it.

Ssst!Ssst!Theatre for children aged 2 and older

A trouser pocket is unfathomable. 

Sometimes you may happen to find a white rabbit in there and then you have your hands full. Because, normally, these white rabbits live under a magician’s hat and they tend to appear and disappear as they please. What should you do with the rabbit?Is it supposed to eat, drink, sleep? Rubbish. – With a white rabbit like that you can only dream.

With nearly nothing but a pile of humour and music, two actors create a fascinating richness of fantasy.

For children from 2 years

A trip to the wonderland of gravity

Falling is easy.

Flying is hard.

Dreaming is fragile like an egg. 



An egg wants to fly, but it should not fall down because it would break. While the egg is dreaming of flying, a man and a woman are acting out all kinds of possibilities of falling and flying in a charmingly clownish and funny way. Using pictures and words they both tell of the difference between lightness/weightlessness and weight/gravity. There are certain rules: a feather hovers, a bag slumps down. But does a house, a chair or a human being fly? Every rule has its exception. There is a lot between up and down, between heaven and earth; and poetically everything is possible, even flying.




Winner of the IKARUS Award 2008 for an extraordinary play for young audiences in Berlin. Invited to the 10th festival AugenblickMal! in Berlin as one of five best shows for children of the year 2009 in whole Germany.
