Golden Stick 2017

3. 8. 2017
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 the Cankarjev Dom Cultural and Congress Centre. 

The festival shows the best Slovenian drama, musical, puppet, dance and experimental performances for young viewers, aiming to present the most successful artistic achievements in the field of performing arts. One of the festival’s long-term goals is to establish a quality exchange between the fields of culture and education. The other goal is to present the best production to foreign professional audience. We promote selected performances as recommendable educational contents in the field of performing arts, as well as devote special attention to developing of special accompanying pedagogical materials and preparing of little viewers for watching of their theatrical performances. The festival is thus becoming a platform for pedagogues who select contents for kindergartens and schools, but it also provides the best information about current productions for foreign selectors.
