Andreas Minz aka Der Minze wowed the crowd at Ventarama with his buddy Lemgus in 2018, what a character he is!
If you have a puppet you are struggling to bring to life, or are new to the world of puppetry/ventriloquism, this lecture is for you, Andreas will be talking about the theory of building the character of a puppet by building stories and gags around it.
When he was younger, Andreas was a pro DJ based in West Berlin, this has given him great insight into reading his audience. He started magic in 2001 and has written books for both close up and magic for kids. In 2008 Andreas attended a ventriloquism lecture by Stevo Schüling, by 2009 Andreas had his first complete show with puppet. The most important phrase he took on board from Stevo was… “Know your audience!”
