master puppeteer

Professional workshop with Bernd Ogrodnik

A chance to learn from a true master! Kris was very pleased to be invited to this two-day workshop for professional puppeteers with Bernd Ogrodnik, organized by Presentation House Theatre. Bernd is Iceland’s state puppeteer, as well as the puppet creator and star performer for the amazing live action marionette film Strings. Carving all of his puppets out of wood, he aspires to be for puppetry what Stradivarius was to violin playing, and to realize its full potential as a high art.
