Also our performances and tours are cancelled due to Covid-19. What this will mean for our work is not predictable yet. We can only hope that live performances will possible again soon.

After the cancellation of shows in Potsdam and Aarau, we have the possibility to do a Live-stream of "Krabat" at Westfluegel Leipzig with the support of Streamio Leipzig. A ghost performance in two ways: not only the audience is missing but also our two colleagues of Grupa Coincidentia who are not able to leave Poland.

Krabat - according to circumstances! Live-stream Saturday 21.03. from 19:30:

The loss of fees after cancelled shows can not be balanced by shifting dates. Please buy tickets for performances even if we cannot invite you to be there ( or E-Mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

The figure on the string will be researched in this workshop, starting with simple constructions, always with a view to the theatrical impression. Movement and construction are entwined, workshop and stage become one. The material can be light or heavy, small or big, shaped or unformed - the goal is always to find a coherent, authentic animation through strings.

One year after the German Premiere Dust is eventually also going to be shown in Israel, home of our partners and colleagues Inbal Yomtovian and Ari Teperberg (Golden Delicious).

There will be three performances:

19.11 20:30 Haifa, Bait 9 theatre, Hanamal st' 69 :::
23.11 17:00 + 20:00 Tmuna Festival Tel Aviv, Shonzino 8 :::


There will be a workshop with Michael Vogel about Marionettes: Things on Strings from 22. to 24.10.2019 for students of the Department of Puppetry and Animation at the Stuttgart Hochschule für Musik und darstellende Kunst.

During our tour to Israel there will be another workshop about animation on 20.11.2019 at the School for Puppetry and Drama in Tel Aviv.
