A scientist is born! From the very beginning of time our hero Ganz is Curious. Is the Earth flat? Are the stars fixed? How does metal hide in stone?

His investigations and inventions bring him to the attention of Queen Lizzy the First, a fellow adventurer, if only she could escape her skirts…

The Adventures of Curious Ganz is a fictitious story based on the true life of 16th century copper smelter Joachim Ganz. It is a celebration of the new, the strange, the brave and the curious!

Told through design, table-top puppetry, music and a few words, all wildly based on the principles of alchemy.
