Affiche voor de productie Heer Stuiterbal van Poppentejater Otto van der Mieden in de Krakeling te Amsterdam
Otto van der Mieden, collector/curator/puppet player and initiator/manager of the Puppetry Museum is born November 29, 1945 in The Hague. Eight years later, he performs the role of showman in a puppet theatre standing on a hand-cart which is pulled along by a friend. Soon enough, Otto is given his own proper puppet theatre. In 1971, Van der Mieden begins to work as a professional puppet player. Apart from several other pieces he writes Heer Stuiterbal in 1982, a play which he performs both in and outside the Netherlands.
