The best Berlin puppets celebrate their birthday this Saturday

There are hidden streets in Berlin where masters do amazing work making this world a little bit more like a fairy tale. Last week I came across with one of those places -called  Alla Hopp. A small cute working space/shop with hundred of famous faces.

These are puppets who look like Oscar Wilde, Franz Kafka, Friedrich Nietzsche, Virginia Woolf and many others. They are being made by graceful Karl Schlarb, a designer and artist based in Berlin. His puppets are made of material, filled with small balls; and surprisingly there is no wire inside, but Karls has his own trick to make them sit and bend the hands. The heads are made from a special thick plastic in order to show all the features of the face.

This is a project which started 3 years ago as an idea to put love for puppets and literature together. So, the puppets got the faces of famous authors. Among them are also Bjork and David Bowie.

This Saturday, Karl Schlarb celebrates the 3rd birthday of Alla Hopp. It will be held on

Solmsstrasse 30
10961 Berlin, 8pm

The party will have a special 20s feel thanks to the wonderful performers „Kiki und Frau Gong“. 

Get in the mood!
