Solo puppetry reading of a recording of your own dreams
In his production, puppeteer Christoph Bochdansky recreates and depicts images from his dreams as he recorded them in his psychedelic diary, as he calls his records. He says he meets two demons who make a pun on his transformations. His “dream diary” is a loosely woven structure of personal cosmology.
Christoph Bochdansky is an Austrian puppeteer based in Vienna. From 1979 he studied stage design at the Mozarteum in Salzburg and in 1981 he moved to Bochum, where he completed his university studies at the Figurentheater-Kolleg. After his studies he was an actor in a number of puppet theaters, e.g. Figurentheater Lilarum. He then began to create his own productions, which he has since performed at international festivals around the world.
He has been a guest lecturer in the puppetry program at the University of Performing Arts in Stuttgart, at the Faculty of Puppetry at the Ernst Busch University of Performing Arts in Berlin and at the Theater Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava. Christoph Bochdansky also produces films and documentaries and organizes exhibitions.
