“PAPPENSPIEL”    Paper Puppet Theater

Playing: “Hans in Luck” and “The Fox and The Geese” –
Storytelling and Storybook Puppetry of Folktales by the Brothers Grimm.

A bicycle traveling, trunk-sized, one man paper marionette show for intimate audiences of all ages.

Idea, creation and original puppetry by artist and craftsman “Max” Eberhard Eichner.

The inspiration to “Pappenspiel” came through the rich culture of storytelling and puppeteering in Germany, where “Max” was born and raised.
This is alive imagination and thoughtful entertainment through moral storytelling and a very original use of the 200 year old art form of the paper figure theater.

Following the performance, Eberhard will show how the puppets and theatre were made.
