The 20th edition of the World festival of Puppet Theatres dedicated to its former director Jean-Luc Félix, who recently passed away is not only an immense pleasure but also an opportunity to highlight the progress made and the new territories explored by the arts of puppetry since its emancipation from stereotypes.
Czech puppet theatre will be represented by the company FEKETE SERETLEK & STUDIO DAMÚZA and the artists Pavol Smolárik, Anna Bubníková, Jiří N. Jelínek, Ivo Sedláček, Matija Solce and Jan Meduna this year. On September 25 - 26 they will present their show Kar. This Russian realism cabaret creates live dramaturgy based on Russian traditions and on Anna Karenine’s tale. Accordion, percussion, violin, cello, double-bass and five voices perform a unique combination of music, theatre and intimate scenes drawn from moving objects.
