Bad-Ass Puppets

Although Miroslaw Zlotnik, with the help of his assistant Carl H. Press III, was capable of creating anything you could imagine, including a few things you most likely couldn't even begin to imagine, it was the the puppets that were their claim to fame.

Over the years, hundreds of thousands of children and their adults have watched Zlotnik's puppets star in their favorite play of the season. (Each summer, app. 45.000 children watch the plays at Marionet Teatret in Copenhagen's central park, Kongens Have, where Zlotnik spent the bulk of his career.) 

Ever sympathetic to outsiders, however, Miroslaw Zlotnik preferred to crowd his workshop with rejects; puppets who had failed auditions, and not gotten the part.
