Explore this artistic goldmine of handmade beautiful puppets when you visit the International Puppet Festival in Porta. From 13-29 October puppets of all styles and techniques will be on display, inviting inquiry and discussion. This year’s exhibit will take focus from the groundbreaking artists of several decades ago, and feature new and inspired modern works.
Artists and groups from Porto and all over Portugal will come for the opportunity to display their unique works of art. The great tradition of European puppetry and marionettes will be brought to the stage in a special expression of performance art. The festival will also greatly focus on music with four separate and distinct concerts. Each is linked by the theme of man’s curious interaction with the world around him.
FIMP in an exciting attempt to be inclusive, has taken the initiative to provide accessibility to the hearing impaired. The festival is proud to announce, in partnership with the Acesso Cultura, that for the first time several shows will be interpreted in Portuguese sign language. Many shows will also be subtitled in either Portuguese or English.
