TIP FEST'S 10th ANNIVERSARY!
Turku International Puppetry Festival TIP -Fest celebrates 10th anniversary!
The festival celebrates the 10th anniversary and the development of the professional puppetry arts scene in Finland. Finnish puppetry scene has grown and secured its status with diverse and strong collaboration between all the artists.
This year’s TIP-Fest aknowledges this voluminous development and presents different stories and fairytales on growth. The programme showcases productions from Russia, France, Austria and Czech Republic as well as Finland. Works presented at the festival offer a wide range of material and techniques of contemporary puppetry and visual theatre – paper theatre, shadow puppet theatre, humanettes, hand puppets and object manipulation, to name a few.
Festival’s opening performance will be Anna Ivanova’s spectacle Daleko Daleko (“Far away”) with 14 performers from Russia. Ivanova has held a remarkable role in the development of puppetry art scene in Finland – as a teacher of the Turku Arts Academy’s puppetry programme and also as the artistic director of the first organized TIP-Fest 10 years ago.
Most performances are directed for adult audiences but the programme also includes performances for adolescents, kids and even for babies.
