In the peculiar world of “A King’s Journey”, all men carry a watering pot, all women carry an umbrella. The country’s king lives a solitary life in a turret of his castle. When the turret collapses one day, he falls into a hole. His housekeeper saves him and together, they go on a journey to the other end of the world.

German puppet theatre company Handgemenge tells the story of a king who is forced to go on a hazardous voyage through tropical islands, deserts and narrow city alleys. He is faced with a number of strange problems for which he finds equally unusual solutions. “A King’s Journey” is a shadow play that uses innovative lighting techniques to create a universe of surreal landscapes and encounters.
