The Performance - Clowns' Houses

In ‘Clowns' Houses’ a combination of puppetry techniques coexists. Puppets, tabletop puppet, shadow theatre, object theatre. They are made of wood, pulp and paper, amounting to about 45 cm. The two puppeteers animate puppets and objects, without being visible to the audience whereas realism in animation, the scenic world, the video projecting and the different lighting situations complement the dark beauty of the performance.
