2022/23

In the 2022/23 season we present 10 new productions, mostly puppet and puppet-drama pieces, which differ in content and execution. They follow the concept of contemporary European theatre of animated forms, but at the same time are rooted in the reality of contemporary society. Of course, we put animated figures at the centre of our institutional 'dramaturgy', where the combination of the animate and inanimate raises important questions about the nature of our existence, but we also add dramatic forms that open up the theatre experience to young people with a different perspective and poetics. The season mixes the classical with new genres, blends the childlike with the experimental, tackles ancient dilemmas of humanity, but always clearly enters into a dialogue with the present and seeks humanity.
