What poetry offers to literature, puppetry can bring to the theatre.
Nothing can replace the intimacy between performer and audience with the medium of the Puppet as the communicational link between them. Something extraordinary seems to take place. When the audience feels that these fragile figures, attached to silken threads, have a heartbeat of their own, they actively contribute to the process of bringing those Puppets to life. They are able to express our deepest emotions, joys and fears – then we experience the true magic of Puppet Theatre.
“Metamorphosis” is a collection of original short stories not told with words, but with the metaphorical grace of Puppets. It depicts the constantly changing nature of our existence and our perception. Nothing remains the way it seems, as it does not matter what we see but how we see it.
The cast consists of the most intricate marionettes and rod puppets carved of wood, as well as unforgettable characters created simply with silk scarves and the hands and feet of the puppeteer. The context of the vignettes ranges from the trivial to the metaphysical. A strong emphasis lies on imagery, made possible through the surrealistic quality inherit in Puppets.
Worlds of Puppets operate a theater in Reykjavik, based at the National Theater of Iceland where Bernd Ogrodnik serves as the master puppeteer.
