Live Puppets

Alex Mihajlovski was born in Macedonia, and has resided in Denmark since 1992.

He began designing and constructing a marionette puppet in Spain 1986.

The result is Barti, a marionette puppet with an extremely complex system of string control, which is constantly maintained and developed.

With more than 40 very fine and mostly invisible strings, Alex enables Barti to move his body, face features, fingers, and express emotions in a unique way.

The first performance with puppet Barti was in 1988. There were only 9 strings then. Every year since then, and new string is added and new movements controlled by the new strings are invented.

Traveling mostly in Europe ever since, he discovered the vast world of puppetry, and the culture behind it.
