SHARING THE LIGHT
The first Giant Puppets were created by Dundu in 2006. Since then, they have brought joy and inspiration to people around the world. Reviving old traditions of storytelling, the puppets connect us to universal tales of togetherness.
DUNDU is German and literally means „you and you“. This name reflects the very foundations of this ambitious art project: crucial at a time when humanity seems increasingly separate. We discovered our contribution to this universal goal by gathering large crowds of people around the Giant Puppets at selected events world-wide. In all contexts and environments, DUNDU serves as a powerful canvas onto which the audience can project their imagination, longings and aspirations.
The family of DUNDU characters invites all people to connect and identify with what they need at that moment. Through our multiple presentational and technological offers, DUNDU will be the main talking point at any event.
New sounds inspired around the West African harp “Kora”, are performed by DUNDU Co-founder Stefan Charisius and his ensemble. He belongs to the few Europeans who excel in playing this instrument rhythmically complex, also as a soloist and in various formations. The roots of storytelling-pop-music create the soundsphere that makes DUNDU come to life. New compositions add spherical melodies to an impactful musical live performance and band concert.
