Every year in September theatre groups from Germany and Belgium travel to Steinau for the puppetry days. Years ago puppet shows had the reputation of being “little human theatre” and were therefor categorized as theatre for children. However, the theatre with figures is on the same level as the “big theatre”. The playing technique ranges from classic marionettes, hand puppets and shadow plays to open acted theatre with jawed figures, large figures, masks and “only” material and object. Puppet show offers light, funny and serious entertainment for everyone.
