IV International Festival of puppet theatres “The dream of flying”

The festival took place between April, 20-24, 2017.

The participants of the festival were puppeteers from Greece, Serbia, Poland, Syria and different cities of Russia: Moscow, Sevastopol, Surgut, Perm, Chelyabinsk, Yekaterinburg, Saint-Petersburg and Kurgan.

During the festival was also held a presentation of the exhibition that was dedicated to the 75th “Gulliver’s” anniversary.

There also were given some master-classes named “Puppets in real life and in theatre”.

The repertoire playbill consisted of 13 most interested performances. These performances were appreciated by professional critics: Marec Vashkel (Poland), Elena Pokorskaya (Moscow) and Vladimir Speshkov (Chelyabinsk). The critics unanimously agreed that all the performances of the festival were of high quality.

The theme of the festival was “Theatre legends”. In the festival program there were 2 performances of this status – “Vanya Datskiy” of Kurgan puppet theatre “Gulliver” and “The little stork and a scarecrow” of  V.Volkhovskiy puppet theatre from Chelyabinsk. Kurgan’s performance is 24 years old and the performance of Chelyabinsk is 33 years old.

The place of the festival has become a small puppet theatre “Gulliver”. During the preparations for the festival the rehearsal hall was reformed into the small hall of 40 seats. The performances were shown one after each other. Therefore, the theatre was always full of spectators.
