01 /Public executions, killings: People have always condemned themselves to demand the death of another person, deny the other his right to exist, to execute a death sentence. In the direction of Israeli director Ariel Doron, the puppet theater ensemble of the tjg.theater junge generation Dresden puts killing in its arbitrariness, randomness and simultaneous inevitability for discussion, while confronting the audience with the role of viewers.
/Ariel Doron has been playing with puppets from the age of 12, and in recent years has been invited with his shows Plastic Heroes and Pinhas to festivals and theatres in over 20 different countries worldwide. He also animates puppets for television and theatre (such as Elmo in Israeli Sesame Street), gives workshops and directs puppetry productions worldwide.
He studied cinema at Tel Aviv University, took puppetry classes and workshops in the school of Visual Theatre, Jerusalem and L’Institut International de la Marionnette, Charleville-Mezieres, France.
02 /The tjg. theater junge generation in Dresden, Germany, was founded in 1949 and has since become one of the largest theatres for children and young audiences of the country. Each year, the tjg. presents more than 600 performances on three different stages at Kraftwerk Mitte, newly opened in 2016, and at various summer stages in the city. This attracts an audience of 90,000 children, young people, and their families each season.
We operate on three levels: acting, puppet theatre, and theatre academy. 20 actresses and actors bring to life tjg.’s productions integrating and exploring current trends in the performing arts sector, including dance and performance art. The city of Dresden‘s puppet theatre was integrated as one artistic branch of the tjg. in 1997, now employing seven professional puppeteers. The theatre academy, founded in 2008, offers theatre workshops for children and young people interested in theatre culminating in two productions each season targeted at a young audience with young people on stage.
