Alex Barti The world-famous marionette on piano
The marionette Barti is a famous pianist, who has attained cult status around the world. Anyone who experiences Barti live on stage never forgets him. Approximately 100 strings on a complicated rod control mechanism bring him to life, with a high level of mimicry and precision that continues to surprise and fascinate audiences. Fall under the spell of this virtuoso puppet and his master.
This fascination has never been better described in literature than by Heinrich von Kleist in his essay "On the Marionette Theatre": "[…] he would never make me believe a manikin can be more graceful than a living human body.”
