“Der Kinderschafe” is a performance based on the short lines for children from “Struwwelpeter” by Heinrich Hoffmana. In the year 1844 physician Heinrich Hoffmann searched for book with pictures as a Christmas gift for his three-year-old son . He didn’t’t find anything suitable for children in this age, so he decided to write and illustrate the book himself … We found this nurserys and we liked them very much. Michał rote music and so our songs come onto being.
This are 19TH century climate and black humored tales about naughty children, which are punished by creepy owners of a mysterious wardrobe. Besides three vampire-like man there is also someone else, that lives in the furniture and wants very much to escape from this dark, horrifying world. It’s maybe horrifying but also very funny, because subject was treat nor very seriously.
We use many types of puppets from small marionettes to big puppets animated by two person. Everything takes place around wardrobe that hides many drawers, schedules and covers that changes all the time.
