Review of Puppet Theatres
2-11 November 2017, Rijeka, Croatia
Rijeka City Puppet Theatre holds its important position in the cultural life of Rijeka by persistently researching, comparing, questioning and challenging puppetry today. It organizes The International Review of Puppet Theatres which has grown into a Festival of exceptional quality during its 22 years of existence which has, time and time again, gathered respected puppeteers and puppet performances, exhibitions and workshops from Croatia and abroad. The first week of November marks the traditional annual beginning of the Review and has become a long-term point of encounter between Croatian and foreign puppetry.
We invite all puppet and children’s theatres to apply with their performances if they wish to participate and enter the festival selection.
The number of applications per theatre is not limited and we will be receiving them until May 1st, 2017. You can find the call here: http://www.gkl-rijeka.hr/index.php/poziv-za-prijave-na-22-reviju-lutkarskih-kazalista-open-call-for-applications-for-the-22nd-international-review-of-puppet-theatres/
