Let’s Celebrate Puppetry!

Casteliers is celebrating its first ten years and is pleased to offer an outstanding selection of theatre from the thriving world of puppetry arts!

The festival will host artists from Belgium and Israel who will share the spotlight with puppeteers from France, Alberta and Québec. The festival program features twelve shows for adult and family audiences, four short pieces, an exhibition, roundtable discussion, and myriad parallel activities.

As in previous years, the festival program will highlight puppeteers’ creativity, as they share their artistic passion for both substance and form. In their own unique ways – poetic, comical, dramatic, satirical – these artists will embody puppetry’s exceptional evocative power and its innate theatricality.

Thanks to the fruitful marriage between materials and performance, story and movement, puppets captivate our hearts and minds. Let yourself be tempted by their charms…

Let’s celebrate puppetry… Let the festivities begin!

Enjoy the festival!
