About us

Museum of Theatre Puppets Lübeck and the Puppet Theatre Lübeck

This blog is the joint project of two institutions that are fully committed to the subject of puppet, figure and object theatre: the Museum of Theatre Puppets Lübeck and the Puppet Theatre Lübeck.

Together we want to present puppet theatre from different perspectives.

On this blog we publish insights into the scientific work of the museum and the creation of pieces of puppet theatre. We look back on past actions and present new (virtual) exhibitions and performances. Recently, the virtual exhibition “Colonialism and Puppet Theatre. Untangling the threads” and the digital children’s series “Corona in the Moose forest”.

We are looking forward to your feedback!

Leave us a comment or contact info@theaterfigurenmuseum.de with praise and criticism.

Raise the curtain!

Digital and analogue puppet theatre in all its facets

In the column “Curtain up!” the Puppet Theatre Lübeck presents on this blog regular news updates from in front of and behind the scenes.

The authors Silke Technau and Stephan Schlafke have so far presented, among other things, the variety of acting techniques in puppet theatre, reported on their work on the new play “Cherry-Picking Shakespeare” and are currently working on the research project “Puppet & micro camera”. They also published their first digital puppet theatre series “Corona in the Moose forest” based on the play “Troll alarm in the Moose forest” on this blog. Together Silke Technau, Stephan Schlafke and Franziska Technau form the Kobalt Puppet Theatre in Lübeck.

The world of theatre characters from a scientific perspective

While the Museum of Theatre Puppets in Lübeck is being rebuilt, the scientific processing of the collection in the museum archive continues in the background. On this blog our colleagues provide unique insights into their work (from inventory to object photography) and present the museum’s extraordinary collection.

The first virtual exhibition of the Museum of Theatre Puppets in Lübeck also appeared on this blog: “Colonialism and Puppet Theatre. Untangling the threads.”

Renovation

News from the construction site in Kolk

The buildings in the Lübeck Kolk are currently being restored. On one page of this blog we have collected everything worth knowing about this special construction site. You can also find your way through the construction site in our 360° virtual tours.

During the work on the more than 400-year-old historic merchant’s houses, we come across interesting insights into Lübeck’s history almost every day. We regularly share these on Twitter using the hashtag #KolkNews.
