Based on the story "Einer, der nichts merkte" by Robert Walser. Ages 7 and up.
For the new Vagabu project, Christian and Maya Schuppli-Delpy, who have been on the road with their puppet theatre since 1979, have teamed up with the two young theatre artists Olivia Ronzani and Anna Renner. The four of them have taken on Robert Walser's story "Einer, der nichts merkte". It is the starting point for a cheerful, thought-provoking puppet theatre piece that makes you want to invent and play out your own stories - a piece for children, but not only for children.
Mr. Binggeli is the name of the man who notices nothing at all, whose head is thoughtless and empty, who "doesn't give a damn about anything, so to speak", until finally his head falls off. Even that he does not notice, so headless he wanders through the world. But who is this Mr. Binggeli and why doesn't he notice anything? Why does he have an empty head? And why does it fall off him? Will he ever find it again?
Only this much can be revealed: Binggeli's head hides small, lively creatures; they jump out unawares when they find it necessary and interfere.
