International Puppet-theatre Festival

The International Puppet-theatre Festival was created in 1977 and was called “International Preview of the Puppet Miniature – Plovdiv”. In 1990, after an interval of four years, the festival had been resumed under the name “Three Are Too Many, Two - Not Enough”. Since 2012 the festival became a biennale and a new unit, “TheatAir”, for open-air shows, concerts and performance, had been added.

The Festival is organized by the non-profit organization International Puppet-Theatre Festival “Three Are Too Many, Two - Not Enough” and State Puppet Theatre - Plovdiv. It is carried out with the support and under the patronage of the Bulgarian Ministry of Culture and the Municipality of Plovdiv.
