About the group:

«Margrit Gysin is the grande dame of puppet theatre and is one of the field's pioneers. For almost five decades she has been working on her unique artistic cosmos. She tells existential stories about the wonders and wounds of life and conjures up the consolation of the world out of coat pockets and from between book covers. Even the smallest detail has a magical effect in her performances. Children enter this cosmos of wonder and amazement – and those, who thought they had long forgotten how to dream, can rediscover it again.» Swiss Theatre Awards 2017
