A special double feature of moral storytelling and paper cup puppetry by puppeteer and teller “Max” Eberhard Eichner of Berlin, Germany. “PAPPENSPIEL” is an ALL ages story theater that travels exclusively by bicycle. As self-propelled motion is at the heart, gave birth and has been giving form to all the oral traditions, for you, this version had rolled in from Bellingham, WA.
