Der Räuber Hotzenplotz und die Mondrakete

April 30 @ 15:00 - 16:00


A black hat with a red feather, a big nose, seven knives and a pepper gun – that’s how we know the notorious villain, the robber Hotzenplotz. Otfried Preußler invented it almost 60 years ago, and since then young and old have known and loved the grumpy scoundrel who, in the end, Kasperl and Seppel still put a stop to. Experience the new adventure now in the planetarium!

In this story, sergeant Dimpfelmoser has a problem: Once again, the notorious robber Hotzenplotz has broken out of the fire station. Terrible! Dimpfelmoser immediately declared a state of emergency. But the lovable rascals Kasperl and Seppel have an idea: everyone knows that the robber can’t keep his hands off the silver. And isn’t the moon made of silver? It would be great if you could just shoot the Hotzenplotz to the moon. The two quickly start building a sophisticated moon rocket…

Where better to tell the story of the moon and the rocket than in the planetarium? Nowhere! That’s why the Hamburg production company HO3RRAUM Media staged the original images based on an imaginative and elaborately produced WDR radio play adaptation especially for the 360-degree full-dome format. In the planetarium, children and adults alike can enjoy the lovingly illustrated radio play. As soon as the robber has been arrested, planetarium visitors will learn in a short digression what the moon is really made of and how real astronauts manage to reach the moon.

At the time, Preußler probably had no idea that his books would sell more than six million copies and be translated into 34 languages. In the meantime, three generations of enthusiastic readers have grown up with the distinctive monster Hotzenplotz. With “The Robber Hotzenplotz and the Moon Rocket” the fourth story in the book series is in circulation. Their discovery in 2018 – 5 years after Otfried Preussler’s death – was a sensation. Originally written by him as a puppet show, it was rediscovered and supplemented by Susanne Preussler-Bitsch as a reading story.

With lovingly animated image worlds in full dome format, surround sound and an instructive excursion into space travel.
