Eva Sotriffer (Bolzano/Italy) is performing as a puppeteer since 2009.
She approached to puppetry after universitary studies of philosophy (Université de Vienne/A and Montpellier/F,  master 1995), different experiences in the world of  theatre (1995 – 2003, street-theatre: Montpellier/Toulouse,  costume design and fabrication: Atelier Costumessa - Lyon, Atelier Nicolao – Venise, Teatro Stabile di Bolzano and others) and a two-year puppeteer-class in Austria/Tyrol (2006 – 2009) consisting in a series of stages with different masters. 
Since the beginning of her work she focusses on non-verbal expression exploiting images, rhythm and sounds, exploring also the potential of traditional techniques.
Since 2010 she is collaborating with the musician Max Castlunger ( www.maxcastlunger.com ) and they created six shows together:

Dreaming Ötzi
A non-verbal puppet & music performance

Concept, puppets, props and play: Eva Sotriffer
Live-Music: Max Castlunger
Dramaturgical consultant: Eva Kaufmann
In cooperation with the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology

What happens if you have a close and accurate look at a prehistorical mummy? You start to evoke his possible former appearance, scenes of his life and origin. Indeed, more than 5000 years ago, he was a human being just like you and me – looking for warmth, food, friends and probably trying to found a family. By our simple means of puppetry and music a prehistoric setting comes alive and appears in front of our eyes. Stones begin to chime, Ötzi himself starts to dream and experience exciting and touching moments.
Our puppets, objetcs as well as musical instruments are mainly made of the materials used during the neolithic period: wood, stone, fur, leather, bones and some copper. The play tries to cover up and to breathe life into trifle stories concealed behind the mummy and his belongings.
This artistic approach may encourage spectators to become active dreamers speculating about former realities. When performed in a museum, child and adult visitors will walk through the exhibition with new perspectives.

Suitable for all ages 4+
Premiere: 22 May 2016, International Museum Day at the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology

A non-verbal hand-puppet performance

In the puppeteers garden puppets don't miss anything - they dance, sing, play and laugh as they like. There is only one thing they can't and mustn't do: move out of this garden trying to reach one of the forbidden fruits. But once ...
