Puppet design and puppet building, in collaboration with Manuel Kolip
In the operetta “The White Horse Inn” life-sized moving mouth puppets with arm rods represent the six guests of the inn. In this regard “to attend on the guests” becomes a slightly ambiguous meaning. Thus director Ingmar Otto satirizes the secret agreement between staff and tourists of the inn to sell a mock idyll on the one side, and to squander their money to incorporate this fake idyll on the other side.

Middle-aged Monika solitarily lives in a neat suburban apartment, strictly following her set of self made rules. When she orders a palm tree to give her stay-cation a tropical flair, she accidentally locks in the delivery man. Bruno finds himself stuck in a place much to his taste – almost. He stays unnoticed and starts to make himself even more at home – very much to the confusion of rule-driven Monika.
