First, a wooden wall with a flap is made in the carpentry workshop of the Schauspielhaus. The motif of the children’s drawing is then applied to the wall in charcoal using a grid and painted. In the course of the preparations, a casting with young actors and actresses takes place on the premises of Spielzeit, where the idea and the script are discussed and the right wardrobe is selected. After setting up the stage and the technical equipment, the eagerly awaited performance on the stage of the Schiffbau in Zurich can begin. The film flap closes and the shooting begins – of course only after everyone present has tried out the ingenious flap in the puzzle wall for themselves.
