The World Puppet Theater Festival welcomes for each edition, around 350 internationals and French professionals. It is hold in 40 venues in Charleville-Mézières and takes over also the streets of the city.
The World Festival of Puppet Theatres, founded in 1961, has continued to increase in scale throughout its fourteen editions. It is thanks to Jacques Felix, a real enthusiast and tireless talent scout, that the Charleville-Mézières Festival has become the unmissable event for puppeteers, programme planners and visitors from all over the world.
For ten days, life in the whole town revolves around the festival. Many events rooms, sports halls, streets and courtyards are used as venues. All types of techniques, styles and exploring of new ideas are welcome - from string to glove puppets, from shadow to Bunraku, from real objects to onscreen, from small intimate forms to giant puppets… traditional shows alongside the most modern of styles - and viewed by a wide-ranging audience.
During the 10 days of the festival, we observe a real abundance of artists in the streets, what brings us to be very attentive about the cohabitation of different shows. That’s why we will ask you to estimate your sound power at best for saving nuisances.
Deadline for applications: 31 August 2014.
