About the group:

For 35 years, Matthias Kuchta has been performing with his puppetry theatre Lille Kartofler. He specialises on producing fairytales by the Grimm Brothers and by Hans Christian Anderson, using his impressive, large fabric-made puppets. He draws in his audience – from Osaka, Vancouver, Boston to Paris, Copenhagen, Dublin and Rome. Lille Kartofler has been a welcome guest at the Puppetry Festival Wels for many years as well.

Günter Wagner has been playing the accordion since he was a child, and discovered the instrument’s qualities for Jazz and other styles at an early age as well. He plays as an accordionist and pianist in various bands, is involved as such in many projects – including the improv theatre group Treibgut.
