“Three Are Too Many, Two – Not Enough” & TheatAir 2021

The ХХІV International Puppet Theatre Festival for chamber puppet performances for adults and children “Three Are Too Many, Two – Not Enough” & TheatAir 2021 this year presented 13 performances from Bulgaria and abroad presented on the Main stage and the Open-air stage of the theatre, 6 street acts presented by international groups, two acoustic concerts and a lot of unforgettable moments.

The twenty third edition of the festival was dedicated to the DESIRE – the one pure as a childlike wim, and the other - firm persistant one, and to the dream - humble and looking to the future, and to that expectation that makes the path unnoticed, of dedication - desirable, and of mistakes - stepping stones, and to the unconscious, ruinous desire, and to the stubborn tapping, and the stimulus that provokes, creates and builds-up. The Desire - for us to be, and to be responsible, empathic, knowledgable and respectful, and to be able to remain silent when it is pure beauty.
