Karromato’s marionette spectacles have delighted audiences in more than 30 countries across Europe, Asia, and the Americas. The company draws on the classic traditions of European marionette theater; all its productions speak directly to the heart without words, using music, universal humor, and the unique personality of each and every hand-crafted marionette.
Karromato makes all its marionettes in its own workshop, using wood, with utmost attention to detail in painting, costumes and sets. The traditional materials and techniques evoke a nostalgia for a by-gone age, and the magic of childhood dreams.
Karromato was founded in Prague in 1997 by artists from the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Spain, bringing together their experience from various theatrical backgrounds. All members of the company share in the productions as puppeteers and builders.
