Dear Guests,

In the VIVID Grand Show, R’eye is separated from her father as a girl and transformed into an android – half human, half machine. Although her life is subject to external control, her yearning for freedom prevails. And, indeed, one day she does begin moving to a different beat. In her search for the identity concealed deep within her, she perceives the beauty of things that we often overlook.

Let us leave today’s world behind and instead behold the many wonders of our world with the bright-eyed young R’eye. The sight is a declaration of love to life and comes from the heart. The Palast also embodies diversity in all its facets and is thus a friendly presence in Germany. You’ll find both atheists and followers of all major faiths here, people with and without disabilities, different skin colours and sexual orientations, and a total of 27 different native languages. Despite all this diversity, when it comes down to it, we all appreciate, stand up for and respect one another. Young R’eye would undoubtedly feel at home here – and we very much hope you do, too.

Thank you for being our guest!

Dr. Berndt Schmidt
General Director and Producer

YOUNG R'EYE

Young R’eye’s transformation into an android – a kind of human machine – is a parable of what happens to us when we enter this world: as children, we are open to everything, but then slowly but surely, we are socialised and shaped by our parents, educational institutions and our surroundings. At some point, we find ourselves trapped in a corset of requirements and expectations. For R’eye, this corset is an external mechanical support structure that enhances her capabilities, but limits her freedom.

For many of us, the question comes up at some point in our life – either loudly or quietly gnawing – of whether we are satisfied and happy with where we are and who we have become. R’eye answers this question with “No!” and so one day breaks out of her world of external control and sets out in search of the true identity concealed deep within her.

In this hypersensuous adventure R’eye discovers her inner strength and realises that genuine freedom begins with a courageous step into the unknown. More than one hundred artists accompany R’eye on her spectacular quest.

Who can you be? When was the last time that you did something for the first time? How far would you go to be happy and fulfilled? This is the story of R’eye. A declaration of love to life.

Glamour Girl is a strong and selfconfident woman brimming with charisma and life experience. She always has good advice for R’eye. It is through her that R’eye realises that pursuing an individual path is not always the easiest and most direct route.

Androidonna reveals her biggest secret: she also had to choose between the two worlds. Sometimes she regrets her decision to have everything organised into a homogenous, safe life. In a way, she sees herself in R’eye and encourages her to go back to where it all began – when she was a girl, young and free.
