German puppet theatre company. Fundus Theater was founded in 1980 by Sylvie Deinert and Tine Krieg with the intention of exploring the interactions between the aesthetic possibilities of puppet theatre and the perceptions of children. Introduced in 1984, the play titled Familienalbum (Family Album), which deals with violent pedophiles in the form of a fable, made the theatre famous throughout Germany.

After many years of success on tour, in 1993, the Fundus Theater moved into its own building in Hamburg. There, the productions arise from an intense exchange with the audience of children and are based on long-term and carefully evaluated educational theatre projects.
