7 Aug 2007

More than 20 of the best European ensemble groups will travel to Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, at the end of this month to compete in the 40th annual International Puppet Festival.

Staged in the exquisite theatres and streets of the eastern European city, the puppetry festival will offer spectators enchanting performances set against words and music in which the puppets seem almost alive, special seminars on how to make and operate puppets, animation displays as well as a number of exhibitions.

Since its inception in 1967 the festival has been open to all forms of expression in puppetry, showcasing the most cutting edge experimentation alongside traditional art forms of past performers.

The International Puppet Festival is one of the world's foremost puppetry festivals and the performances will appeal to both children and adults, fascinated by the ancient and captivating art of puppetry.
