When a picture breaks the mold … and the characters end up on stage!

Is that cow in love? Did he swipe the bouquet? Is that person in the portrait someone else than we’ve always thought? What are the secret mysteries that loom in the Lenbachhaus’s paintings?
And how did the museum come by these works? These are the questions and stories we explore in our puppet theater workshop, and this summer it’ll be all about the museum’s collection. Each project day will be dedicated to a different work. We ask our own questions and tell new stories we present on the stage. We build and paint puppets and set decorations or turn our story about the selected work of art into a live performance.

The pictures we’ll take of our productions will add to our growing collection on view in the museum’s garden.

Performances are held at 5pm in the garden.
Admission to the performances is free for all parents, friends, and other spectators.
