Despite or maybe especially because of our time of perfect, high-tech productions for the screen, the fascination and need for life Theater is eminent.
Nothing can replace the intimacy between performer and audience, and the medium of the Puppet as the communicational link between them. Something extraordinary seems to take place in a successful Puppet show. The audience, being initially aware of the fact that the actors are ”only” puppets, seem to sign under a silent agreement stating ”we believe”. Thus they actively contribute to the process of bringing those puppets to life. And when we feel that these fragile figures, attached to silken strings, have a heartbeat of their own to express our deepest emotions, joys and fears, then we experience the true magic of FigurenTheater.
