The jubilee edition of the International Festival of Puppetry Schools PUPPETNOPUPPET will take place in Białystok on June 21-25, 2022. It is one of the most durable academic and cultural traditions in Poland: it has been held in Białystok every two years since 2002. In 2022, we will celebrate a double jubilee: the 10th edition of the event on the 20th anniversary of its establishment (due to the pandemic, the festival was not held in 2020).

It is organized by The Aleksander Zelwerowicz National Academy of Dramatic Art in Warsaw – Branch Campus in Białystok, together with the Białystok Puppeteers Association and the Białystok Puppet Theatre. The Festival traditionally presents performances in two streams: professional and student.

Prof. Marta Rau, Vice-Rector of the Academy, Art Director of the Festival:

I would like this jubilee event to reflect on the place of puppet theatre in the current reality and give the opportunity to enjoy creativity in the most beautiful, in my opinion, art field. Let’s be the creators of this Festival together!

The Festival is organized thanks to the financial support of the Polish Ministry of Education and Science and the City of Białystok.
