Gundacker & Berger are the authors of their productions, they also achive the construction of the puppets, visual concept, scenery, musical composition, photography, short film (movies), dramaturgy and direction. This kind of general approach leads to their very individual style.
Unconditionally and absolutely Gundacker & Berger strive for creating the possibility for individual, emotional, intellectual and free interpretation for the audience.
Topics of their profound and intelligent plays are existential contents like individuality, respect and humanism combined with humour and social criticism. Thir whole work reflects the vision of a “more-human” world, a society that offers more time and respect to its people.
