In addition to contemporary puppet theater, we stand for innovative ways and venture into new projects. Together with our cooperation partners, the Saxon start-up company 'vrendex' and West Saxon University of Applied Sciences Zwickau, we work with future-oriented approaches in the field of virtual reality.
The Erlking in Chemnitz
Last weekend we were invited to the Illuminarium in Chemnitz to present our digital puppet theater "360° Virtual Puppetry" to interested people. It was two nice days with great conversations and enthusiastic faces. Thanks to all who were there and visited us in our shipping container.
The international puppet festival "Fira de Titelles de Lleida" in Lleida, Spain, has invited us to their 34th edition from May 5-7. On site we will present our project Virtual Puppetry including our first production "Der Erlkönig". Muchas gracias!
We have dubbed both of our VR productions into English. This makes the pieces more accessible to an international audience and allows us to reach people all over the world. As soon as the VR glasses can be ordered with English dubbing, we will let you know here!
To make the ordering process of our VR glasses even easier, we now have an explanatory video that shows step by step how the ordering process works with us. From one click to the return of the glasses, everything is visually summarized. Take a look!
On 16.12.22 it's finally time: Our second VR premiere "The Gold Diggers" starts through. Join the three companions on a journey to new adventures and be up close in a 360° spectacle. You won't be able to escape the feeling of a gold rush either!
And have been invited to the forum: "Connecting the analogue and digital worlds, and living better. See examples of success - contribute ideas" at SüdWestSachsen Digital. Together with WHZ, we exhibit and discuss digitality and its success models in our everyday lives.
We won an award for innovation! We were invited by the Teatr Tęcza (Poland) to their festival. It was great and we are extremely grateful to have made this German-Polish friendship. Thank you! Dziękuję bardzo!
On the occasion of our 70th birthday, we are celebrating an International Puppet Theatre Festival from 07-09 October 2022. On 08.10.22 at 06:00pm you can experience the "Erlkönig" in the town hall Zwickau. Get your ticktes now!
Our Germany & Austria wide shipping is entering the next phase. You can order again via our website. And from December we will have two ballads for you: Look forward to "Die Goldgräber" ("The Gold Diggers") (pictures in our gallery).
The pandemic has made the cultural industry get creative. Because the audience could no longer come to them, the puppet theater Zwickau has developed the first 360-degree play for virtual reality glasses.
We are more than just a bunch of experts: We have smart people working together as friends. Together we put a lot of joy and passion into our project... come by and get to know us from all our sides. (Puppet Theater Zwickau: Gewandhausstr. 3 08056 Zwickau - Germany)
The project is developed within the framework of "dive in. Programm für digitale Interaktionen" of the Federal Cultural Foundation, funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM) in the NEUSTART KULTUR program.
This measure is co-financed by tax funds on the basis of the budget passed by the Saxon state parliament.
