See our first puppet theater miniature in Vratsa, Sofia, Burgas, Stara Zagora and Plovdiv

The third edition of the International Theater Miniature Festival "Teatroscope", organized by Art Land theater, will be held in five cities in mid-June: in Vratsa (June 14, Drama and Puppet Theater, 4-7 p.m.), in Sofia - Grand Hotel Sofia (June 15, 5-8 p.m.), at "Muzeiko" (June 16, 3-6 p.m.) and MCI "Krasno Selo" (June 17, 5-8 p.m.), Burgas (June 18, Flora Exhibition Center ", 5-8 p.m.), Stara Zagora (June 19, the Architect's House, 5-8 p.m.) and Plovdiv (June 20, State Puppet Theater - Plovdiv, 4-7 p.m.).

Twelve shows lasting from 3 to 12 minutes, audiences from 5 to 105 years old and puppeteers from Brazil, the Czech Republic, Portugal and Bulgaria! 

"We are very happy that for the third year in a row we are making the magic of "Teatroscope" happen for the Bulgarian audience. We have become something of a smile workshop. People remember that the beauty is in the small details that they often pass by, busy rushing about in their work," says the creator of "Teatroscope" Maria Banova. "The basis of the performances is the Caja Lambe-Lambe technique, which is better known in Latin America and in China. It is an impression, theatrical situation or story presented in a small stage box, with small puppets and objects, accompanied by music, lighting and other stage effects. Each performance is for one spectator. Its creation is in no way inferior to the efforts of a production for a standard on-stage performance." adds the director.

State Puppet Theater - Plovdiv participated with the puppet miniature "Tale of the Lead Soldier" - a different reading of the classic Andersen story.

Tickets will be sold on the spot, and with one ticket the viewer can watch four miniatures. It is recommended to plan at least 30 minutes to visit the festival, for a really fulfilling experience. The audience capacity within one hour is 100 people.

The project is implemented with the support of the Ministry of Culture under the "Festivals" program.
