In 1943 the Americans and the Russians were gaining ground in the war against Hitler’s Germany. Although only 13 years old, Felix Mirbt crossed Germany by bicycle with his father, who carried in his bag 3.5 million marks, a sandwich and a small pistol. The marks were destined for German refugees, the sandwich for Félix and the pistol for the unforeseen.
At the time of his death, Felix left behind a phenomenal quantity of puppets that show the evolution of his extraordinary artistic career. He also left behind a 500-page manuscript that combined memories of that initiatory journey with theoretical reflections on puppet theatre.
The authors, Monty, Ducas and Hudon had all known and worked with the master puppeteer. Together they bury themselves in his notebooks and its various versions, and they bring back to life some of his puppets. With remarkable musicians - Clemens Merkel, violin of the Bozzini Quartet and nephew of Felix, Nicolas Letarte, eccentric iconoclast, and Alexis Dumais, virtuose - they make up a cubist portrait of this artist that took a very important part in the evolution of the contemporary puppetry.
