A Path with No End

One of the promotional slogans of our theatre is “On paths with no end”. With this slogan, we wanted to hint at the endless dimensions of imagination, which lies at the core of innovativeness and creativity. 

We have endeavoured to open multisided processes of imagination and learning in which the artists can express the full range of their potential and go beyond it to create works in which the spectators can immerse themselves and find their own impulses and inspiration. We nurture and develop a broad range of expressions, from Theatre for Early Years to contemporary forms of object theatre, as we are positive that the most convincing theatre is not concerned with any formal or generic determinations.

In 2018, the Ljubljana Puppet Theatre celebrated its 70th anniversary. After all this time, it has come to occupy a special place in Europe – a bridge between the European East and West, between different production protocols and cultural heritages. Being aware of its uniqueness, we strive to take the greatest advantage of our special position. When the theatre is presented internationally, you compare it with the others, and it is at this point that the particularity of our position becomes important. As a trademark, the Ljubljana Puppet Theatre does not represent a singular authorial poetics. With our consistent programming politics, we try to attract various first-rate artists from Slovenia and the broader region, while our seventy-year tradition ensures the quality of the staging. Our regular and systemic financing allows for risks and explorations and at the same time maintains a relatively large body of employees, who also cultivate the traditional skills of making and animating puppets and preserve and present the heritage of Slovenian puppetry. All the above indicates our potential for international cooperation, our theatre is considered as a reliable partner in European projects. 

We suggest that you follow us on our path – you will not regret it!
