Past Events

Labirint Theatre was established in 1992 by Saša Jovanović, who studied puppetry at the International Puppet Institute and Puppet Arts School, Charleville Mezieres, France. The theatre's first ever performance was entitled Minotaver (1998).

The company is a member of Association of Puppeteers and has received awards at several festivals both in Slovenia and abroad. Most prominent members of Labirint Theatre are: Saša Jovanović, Katja Povše, Tina Oman, Žiga Lebar, Martina Mavrič, Špela Čadež and Jasna Vastl.


Labirint Theatre connects a young and middle generation of puppeteers who explore various puppetry forms and expressions. Its productions comprise original interpretations of stories, myths and texts, which, other than Minotaver, include Legs and Wings (Frida Kahlo’s biography), Word is a Horse (based on H C Artman’s short stories), and Butterfly and She-Butterfly (a fairy tail by young Slovene author Nina Kokelj), Little Man Among Chimneys (based on a short story by Slovene writer Lojze Kovačič) and White Kitten (based on poems for children by Slovene poet Dane Zajc). In 2008 Labirint Theatre developed a performance based on The Snow Queen, a tale by H C Andersen, as an innovative combination of a stop-motion animated film and puppetry.
