FOOLS AND PRINCESSES

This colorful and lively play was produced by the National Theater of Iceland to celebrate the 200 birthday of Hans Christian Andersen. Directed by Agusta Skuladotir the play became a huge success and won the “Griman” for best Children’s Performance. The play consisted of seven famous tales by the Danish author, and was filled with music, dance, laughter and tears. Bernd build and also performed the puppets during its long run.

It was Bernd’s first assignment for the National Theater and some of the puppets created for the production gained star status. The unrivaled hero was “The Ugly Daggling”, that turned into a swan in front of the audience eyes. Despite of a wingspan of nearly 180cm the bird was completely build of wood. Each leg was made of 24 separate pieces to ensure the typical wobbling walk of a duck. The flexible neck, and unfold able wings, where hidden inside the body until the moment the clumsy little creature turned into a graceful swan.

Another puppetry highlight of the production was the “Little Girl With the Matches”.

It was a theater highlight to observe, how the magic of a single puppet could hold the audience by a string, after nearly two hours of song and dance.
