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.
