The Marionetes Gotsi Theater was founded in 1978 by Nikos Gotsis. Nikos Gotsis in 1960, at the age of 16, worked as a puppet operator at a touring theater. From 1960 to 1970 he took over the management of the theater. He uploaded the works "The Shoes Cat" and "The Island of Treasures" presenting them all over Greece with great success. From 1970 to 1977 he was involved as a car brake businessman. But his love for the puppet led him in 1978 to the establishment of the puppet "Gotsi" theater and his involvement for the next 30 years.


Thanasis N. Gotsis from a young age followed the performances and tours of the troupe and began his involvement with the art of puppet from the age of 8 years. Since then, he has participated in the production of most projects of the troupe and the construction of the martyrs continuing the family tradition.


From the day of the foundation of the theater, in the context of the development of puppet art in Greece, there are continuous efforts being made by investigating the most well -made puppet construction and its dissemination as a Greek birthplace from 500 BC. (Statues of nervous).
