In the Back of Time
      For Children       For Youth and Adults
60 years passed since the first staging of The Little Sleepy Star (1955) at the Marionette Stage of the City Theatre Ljubljana. To commemorate this great anniversary, we have prepared special events.
The Zlata paličica (Golden Stick) Festival is a Slovenian biennial festival of performing arts for children and young people organised by the Lutkovno gledališče Ljubljana (Ljubljana Puppet Theatre), Slovenski gledališki inštitut (Slovenian Theatre Institute) and Cankarjev Dom Cultural and Congress Centre.
Slovenia is a country with a rich tradition of puppeteering. The Puppet Museum's permanent exhibition, set up by the Ljubljana Puppet Theatre, introduces you to the history of puppeteering in Slovenia and the creativity of contemporary Slovenian puppeteers, presents the most popular puppet characters, and gives you an insight into puppeteering techniques and the process of creating a puppet show. After viewing the exhibition, you can try your hand at puppeteering skills.
