Christiane Klatt

- artistic director/puppeteer

After completing my MA in Theatre Studies (Bochum, Berlin and London), I completed a Post-Graduate Diploma in Advanced Theatre Practice (major in Puppetry) at the Central School of Speech and Drama (London, UK).
To support my work as a puppeteer, dramaturg and set designer, I participate regularly in professional development seminars - these are a valuable source of new ideas and also an opportunity to exchange ideas with colleagues.

Next to directing my own company I worked in theatres like Schauspielhaus Bochum and Theater Lübeck.

I was a committee member of UNIMA Germany and part of the editorial staff of the journal "Das andere Theater" (The other Theater) from 2003 until 2009, and I have been a member of LAFT Berlin since 2014. From 2015-19 I initiated and organised the local puppet theatre network IG Puppe.

Since 2019 I am board member of the German Association of Professional Puppet Theatres (VDP e.V.)

... and puppets for the shows for adults

I was born in September 1965. After training and working for several years as a child care worker with adolescents, I studied architecture and worked in different fields of architecture.
Searching for a new field of activity I realised that puppet making was my true passion. Since then I have been creating puppets in my workshop in Berlin.

Felix Kroll

- music

for the adult shows

Born in East Berlin, Felix Kroll is dedicated to breaking down the wall of prejudice surrounding his instrument. After almost 6 intensive years of classical music study bot at home and abroad (Bremen, Münster and Finnland), Felix devoted himself to this task through a range of projects. His varied and exciting style of play resonated both with successful groups such as "Die Grenzgänger" as well as avant-garde ensembles such as "RADAR". His repertiore spans a range from folk music to contempory pieces in a way that is unique and that reflects the broad spectrum of potential embodied in the accordion.
