Every two years the Slovene Puppetry Biennial examines the state of Slovene puppetry, choosing and presenting the best works created over the past two years. Featuring both major puppetry institutions as well as the many small puppetry groups from Slovenia, it includes small- and large-scale performances aimed at both the children and adult audiences. With various puppetry genres, techniques, and aesthetics utilised, a special focus is set on the puppetry-intrinsic theatrical elements.

The biennial aims to present Slovenian puppetry to the broader domestic yet also foreign expert public, such as selectors, organisers and directors of foreign festivals and theatres, theatre critics, etc. Each year, the latter are explicitly invited by the festival.

Background

The festival was established in 2001 by the Puppetry Artists Institution of Slovenia, who now run it together the Maribor Puppet Theatre. The latter acts as the main venue, though other venues such as GT22 are also used.

The biennial was launched in place of the earlier puppetry festival, Klemenčič's Days. The first 2 biennials took place at the Maribor Puppet Theatre and featured about 15 performances. The 2005 edition took place at Koper Theatre, at the Praetorian Palace in Koper, and in the Koper Regional Museum. The 2009 festival took place in Ljubljana and Maribor and also presented its events across Slovenia's borders, in Carinthia, Austria. In 2011 it returned to be hosted mainly at the the Maribor Puppet Theatre.

Programme

The puppet shows programme is set of two parts, one being the competitive one and the accompanying one. Together they usually present somewhere around 15 – 20 performances. The other part of the accompanying programme includes exhibitions of puppets and stage sets, round-table discussions, book presentations, film screenings and photo documentation exhibitions, plus some additional high-quality performances aimed at young audiences.

An international expert jury confers the Slovene Puppetry Biennial Prizes, awarding one for best performance, one for life work and one for artistic achievements achieved from past four years.
