  1. A grim tale of hidden undercurrents: desires, fears, manipulation, and animal instincts vie with each other in a maelstrom of passions and pitfalls. In some of the ideas and images, dream merges with reality. The result is portrayed as a hall of mirrors, with female oppression and male dominance and egocentricity.

    The narrative is based on the fear and bewilderment of the main character’s nightmare, interacting with her deep-rooted fear of her own, subconscious lusts. A pretty young woman, driven by the sadism of an egomaniac and her own, apparently unwilling oppression, mutates into a human marionette, «muñeca».

    She seeks oblivion, attempts to flee from herself, her experiences, and her dreams. One of her acquaintances – a real person – becomes a symbol of evil in a bizarre dream and drags her soul into a yawning chasm of fear and humiliation. Her inner power struggle begins. Will she find an exit? What is reality, and what is surreal?

    THE MEANING OF «Muñeca»

    It is as famous as Grimms’ Fairy Tales and is a standard character of both the miniature and big stage: the puppet called «muñeca» (spanish) or marionette.

    Its origin does not lie in the puppet theater or in politics. No, the marionette, whose limbs are moved by strings, actually has its roots in Catholicism. Its name is derived from the French term mariolette, the diminutive of mariole, the figure of the Virgin Mary so popular in the Middle Ages. The marionette is therefore, to some extent, the great-great-grandchild of the Blessed Virgin.

    SYNOPSIS (German)

    Eine düstere Geschichte über das tief verborgenen Kräftespiel zwischen Wünschen, Angst, Manipulation und animalischen Trieben – Gedankenbilder die manchmal Traum und Wirklichkeit verschmelzen lassen - ein Laboratorium der Leidenschaften und Abgründe. Dargestellt als Spiegelkabinett mit weiblicher Unterwerfung und männlicher Dominanz und Egozentrik.

    Die Erzählweise lehnt sich an die Angst und Verstörung eines Alptraums der Hauptfigur, in Komplementarität mit der Urangst vor seinem eigenen, unterbewussten, lustvollen Begehren. Eine junge, schöne Frau, die durch den Sadismus eines Egomanen und ihrer augenscheinlich unfreiwilligen Unterwerfung zur menschlichen Marionette - „Muneca“ - mutiert.

    Sie sucht das Vergessen, versucht zu fliehen - vor sich selbst, Ihren Erlebnissen und Träumen. Eine reale, ihr bekannte Person wird zum Sinnbild des Bösen in einem bizarren Traum und reisst Ihre Seele in einen tiefen Schlund aus Angst und Demütigung. Ihr innerer Kampf der Mächte beginnt - findet sie einen Ausweg? Was ist wahrhaftig - und was irreal?

    BEDEUTUNG «Muñeca»

    Sie ist so bekannt wie die Märchen der Gebrüder Grimm und zählt zum Stammpersonal der kleinen und grossen Bühne: Die Puppe «Muñeca» (w, spanisch) oder „Marionette“ genannt.

    Ihr Ursprung hat nichts mit Puppentheater oder Politik zu tun, nein: Die Marionette, jene bewegliche, an Fäden aufgehängte Gliederpuppe, kommt vielmehr aus dem Katholizismus. Ihr Name stammt vom französischen „mariolette“, dem Diminutiv von „mario“, jener im Mittelalter so beliebten Marienfigur. Die Marionette ist also gewissermassen die Urenkelin der heiligen Maria.
