Gregor Schwank, professional puppeteer, was a former member of the famous puppet theatre “Augsburger Puppenkiste”, participating in several TV-productions, too. With his own mobile puppet-theatre the artist is giving international performances and theatre projects for health and ecological programs in various countries of Europe, Africa, South and Middle America and Asia.

The puppeteer Gregor Schwank will introduce the audience to the fascinating world of puppetry with a blend of charm, humour and delight. The performance starts with magic scenes of “Varieté” - beautiful and aesthetic string-marionettes carved out of wood by the artist himself: the mysterious night-fairy, the little hobgoblin “Miquito” and other fantastic creatures. Afterwards a practical demonstration and lecture with a photo-documentation give examples how to approach the community with educational theatre for health awareness raising.
