Landsberg am Lech: In 1994 the name “Die Stelzer” was officially used as the name of the theatre for the first time. The management at that time, a trio of Wolfgang Tietze, Peter Pruchniewitz and Wolfgang Hauck, renamed the former “Lechwehrtheater“, which had already begun in 1983, and introduced a new era.
Now 25 years have passed, countless appearances lie behind us. Performances worldwide, from the desert in Morocco, on a ferry in a Norwegian fjord to an icy slope of the downhill ski race in Flachau. Some things have changed, some still remain the same.
Memories, anecdotes, an archive of over 30,000 images. The result is an exhibition that will be shown in the Säulenhalle in Landsberg from 16 August to 9 September 2019.
Of course, the stilts have also grown older. Many have already retired. But there are many young and committed young people who are just as enthusiastic about theatre on stilts.
They are already active as new trainers in Landsberg and have formed a new group that is now preparing something special for the anniversary with their own ideas.
