BERND OGRODNIK serves as artistic director.
Born 1961 in Germany he founded his company (formerly known as Alchemilla Puppetworks) in 1986 while living in Iceland. After moving to the USA and Canada for ten years, he now makes his home in Iceland again, where he developed a strong affiliation with the National Theater.
He works a performer, designer, builder, teacher and director.
His approach is strongly influenced by his background as a classical musician, illustrator, woodworker and martial artist, and his work has best been described as “food for the soul, not chewing gum for the eyes”.
