Dr. Flade - A puppet show about the hunting and burning of witches in Trier

One of Jesus Remus ways of expressing himself has been through the creation of a variety of handmade puppets. The style was really rare and unique, often combining human with animal characteristics, resulting in very bold and charismatic figures. For his works, he even got offered a lectureship at the academy of arts in Trier, founded by Erich Krämer. However, he declined this position so that he didn't had to compromise his freedom for it. In the 80s then, after returning from India, he started working with puppets again and founded the "Magic Blues puppet theater" together with his then wife. There he gave full scope to his creativity and built scenery or wrote plays and they also modeled characters, recorded music for the plays. 

One of these puppet shows was "Dr. Flade", which dealt with the history of his catholic hometown Trier in the hunting and burning of the so called witches. For now we will only show you iconic pictures of the characters and the scenery, but there are also some recording fragments of recorded audio and video, which we are willing to present for an even more comprehensive experience at a later stage.
