Two hands, Dumpu and Dinki, meet for the first time. They both are total strangers to each other. The one hand is grumpy and clenched as a fist, the other is cheeky, playful and curious. Who is the other? Friend or foe? Each of them wants to maintain their position and be the one and only. But meeting strangers can be fun, and so they soon play funny games with hand figures, gestures and sounds. Can there really be one – or how about going hand in hand? A theatre play about the whole cosmos of human relationships in which trust and confidence eventually prevail.

In a ‘fantasy language’ – suitable for speakers of all languages with Anne-Kathrin Klatt, Anja Füsti and Michael Miensopust.
