TheatAir OpenAir Festival module is back!

And this year the TheatAir festival finds its way to its audience! An incredible event that State Puppet Theatre Plovdiv, with the support of the Municipality of Plovdiv, presents to the residents and guests of the city. From September 4 to 6, TheatAir will bring together artists from a variety of arts - theater, circus, music and magic, who will delight and amaze you in various outdoor locations in the city center.
We believe that the best way to be above everyday problems, above difficulties and above everything that divides us is to lift our spirits through the joy of shared art.

TheatAir - fly!
