THE BUDAPEST MARIONETTES brings about a range of different marionettes in a cycle of short stories accompanied by music. The performance contains no words. The show is exceptional because the puppet constructor-performer uses an artistic language and a world of forms very characteristic of Central Europe, but creates something new with every puppet. THE BUDAPEST MARIONETTES, with an array of unique and inventive puppets, is an event designed to entertain audiences of all age groups (6-106 years).


Bence Sarkadi is a puppeteer from Hungary with 15 years of professional experience and a PhD in Literary and Theater studies. He has performed his one-man puppet shows in the streets and on the stages of 6 continents and has won prestigious awards all around the world.
