It is a few months ago we were willing to have the opportunity to publish some news about a German company that really attracted us for its visual work. Now we’ve got it: Figurentheater Wilde & Vogel, from Germany, won two awards at the Puppets are Human too Festival in Warsaw, Poland: the Best Theatrical Use of Puppets prize and the Wonderful Moment of Animation.
The Figurentheater Wilde & Vogel was founded in 1997 by the puppeteer Michael Vogel (graduate of Department for Puppetry Stuttgart) and the musician Charlotte Wilde as a professional freelance touring company based in Stuttgart, since 2009 in Leipzig. In 2003 Wilde & Vogel co-founded the Lindenfels Westflügel Leipzig, where they organize events and work as artistic directors.
