When bad news is conveyed, it is reassuring to be able to send good news along with it!!
As all attentive press observers have noticed, we will not be able to hold the International Wels Puppet Theater Festival 29.2.0 on the planned date in March. Therefore we unfortunately had to cancel all reservations.
The good news: We managed to find free venues for 2 blocks of dates in 2021, to which most performances can be postponed. So we dare to experiment with a festival that takes place throughout the year.
March 18, 2021 - 6:30 p.m.
Our new festival format for young animation art, which will kick off live on stage for the 30th anniversary in 2022, begins with an online kick-off on March 18. We cooperate with "Studio 17-Medienkulturhaus Wels" https://www.medienkulturhaus.at/studio17/ - the link to the event will be available in good time. Interested parties are asked to pay attention to it - but we will also be informed about content-related details by newsletter.
June 7-10, 2021
32 of the performances planned for March can be postponed to June. Details here in brief ...
Including the favorites of the Wels children, Lille Kartofler and Margrit Gysin. Karin Schäfer will kick off the first four days of the festival with the Merlin Ensemble. We look forward to a packed program and inspiring gatherings of audience and artists in our festival office in the Minoriten and in the Flavor Yard in the Alter Schl8hof.
November 8-10, 2021
Another 17 events from the March program. You will find out details here in good time.
All the artists you are looking for in vain in the postponed program were unfortunately no longer available on these dates and will visit us in 2022.
We are trying to save puppet theater from these "culturally lean" times and ask you, dear audience, to remain loyal to us in spite of all this.
See you !
Gerti Tröbinger and the festival team
