What is Virtual Puppetry?

With 360° Virtual Puppetry we are developing a new genre in theater heaven. 

We combine analog puppetry with the latest technology and bring not only contemporary puppet theater to the audience at home but create a whole new and immersive theater experience of the most intense kind. The spectator is right in the middle of the action and the plot is played in 360 degrees around them with surround sound and 4K video quality in VR glasses. Together with the West Saxon University of Applied Sciences Zwickau and the Chemnitz production company Vrendex, we have developed the first virtual reality puppet show production so far. 


German ballads serve as the narrative material that can be experienced in the VR glasses. The productions, including the VR glasses, can easily be delivered to your home. After the ordering process (see offers), the package with VR glasses, headphones and an instruction leaflet with explanations is prepared and sent by mail though a logistics company. You always receive the package on a Friday and can enjoy it in the comfort of your home over the entire weekend. The package comes with prepaid postage, and you just need to return it to the post office. By also sending the puppet theater piece in VR glasses to schools, it will enable students throughout Germany and Austria to not only live German poetry, but to experience it.
