Open doors and puppet theater by La Mercè - Fundació Mies van der Rohe

Open doors and puppet theater by La Mercè

On the weekend and the day of the Mercè, apart from the open doors, we invite you to enjoy the pavilion with a family activity.

On this occasion and in the context of the centenary of the Bauhaus we propose a very special puppet show. As mobile witnesses of the Bauhaus, at the hands of Christian Fuchs, replicas of 10 dolls created at the Weimar School in 1923 will represent “The Adventures of the Little Hunchback.” Before they will explain to us how they were created in 1923 by the students who experimented in the Bauhaus stage workshop under the direction of Oskar Schlemmer for this work of the collection “Fairy Tales of 1001 Nights” without then being represented. This time they will act, almost without words, accompanied by live Paul Hindemith’s contemporary piano music.

Puppeteer: Christian Fuchs
Storytelling: Joan Vitòria i Toni Rumbau ( El globus vermell)
Blai Mañer Ferré

The puppets appear by courtesy of Bauhaus.Weimar.Moderne Die Kunstfreunde e. V. and Klassik Stiftung Weimar.
The realisation was funded by the Free State of Thuringia.
