FREISPIELE 24 - Free intermediate diplomas of the 48th year of contemporary puppetry

A huge meteor is hurtling toward Earth. Souls find no peace, doors lead to nowhere. Fate calls for heroic journeys, people are overtaken by their shadows and hell is always other people.


This is the cosmos in which they locate their free pre-diplomas. The students of the 48th class of contemporary puppetry explore the extremes of human and material existence. Seven productions create new worlds and focus on the smallest and the largest. They reach for great moments and acknowledge the infinity of the art of puppetry.

The 48th year of contemporary puppetry art is:

Sophia Jelena Bobić, Christopher Breust, Cecilia de la Jara, Tatyana Ochsenohr, Jago Schlingensiepen, Esti Schrader, Hanik Soleimani, Emma Teichert, Christine Zeides
