A scientist is born!
From the very beginning our hero Ganz is Curious.
He investigates everything.
From the caterpillar to the stars Ganz wants to observe and understand it all - is the earth flat or round?
Does the sun travel around the earth or earth around sun?
Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
How does electricity travel?
No stone is left unturned.
His investigations and inventions bring him to the attention of Queen Lizzy the First, a fellow adventurer, if only she could escape her skirts …
The Adventures of Curious Ganz is a fictitious story based on the true life of 16th century copper smelter Joachim Ganz.
It is a celebration of the new, the strange, the brave and the curious!
Told through design, table-top puppetry, music and a few words, all wildly based on the principles of alchemy.
