Step into this wunderkammer – a cabinet of curiosities, an ancient and meditative place of wonder where rare artefacts and intriguing objects can transport you with their inimitable allure and unsettling beauty. A place where the mundane and the wonderful, where poetry and technology exist in equilibrium and thus can enable new perceptions of our world and the unity of all things.
A theatrical entertainment betwixt the visual and performing arts in which the complex, many-faceted medium of the marionette can release our sense and understanding to perceive gravity and magnetism. A world where mere mechanics can demonstrate marvellous mysticism and, through freedom of movement, we can experience a connection between physics and gracefulness. In this wunderkammer there is the universal connection between all things, a place where history, art, nature and science are fused as one.
After the success of its productions Salto.Lamento and Hotel de Rive at previous festivals, we are very pleased to welcome the return of this internationally acclaimed German puppetry company.
