ALFONS
Where do we come from? Where are we going?
And is there enough parking there?


As a young boy, it was still easy to get answers. 'Ask the concierge' is what
says in France, explains ALFONS. 'In case you don't know what that is: La Concierge, that's
like a janitor but nice. They were in every apartment building in Paris back then. And she always knew
: La Concierge was my very first search engine!"
House no. 13 in Rue des Lyonnais also had its concierge - the same house that
ALFONS moved into with his mother when he was a child. ALFONS has since grown up. And he
is asking himself much bigger questions: Is the end of humanity already in sight? Or is
there still light at the end of the tunnel? And if so, at least an energy-saving lamp? The search
for answers leads the storyteller and Puschel philosopher from the beginnings of
humanity to the current crises and, at the same time, back again and again to the house
of his childhood, up and down the stairs, through the floors of the house in the Rue des Lyonnais.
ALFONS' new program is a touching, typically Alfonsian mélange of solo theater
and cabaret; a delight with lasting after-effects: Tears in the eyes, warmth in the
heart and a hangover in the laugh muscles.
