The Board of Directors and the Theater Management have decided to proceed with opening the International Puppet Festival - Jerusalem, as planned, for the general audience.
The opening event for the invited guests will not take place in light of the harsh reality.
We feel that it is our duty as a cultural institute to create a different reality for the children, parents, youth and adults. A different reality which is currently much needed. It is our practical and modest way of trying to bring happiness and joy.
We believe in the power of art and artists to create a challenging yet reconciled world, poetic and imaginative, especially at this time.
Together we create an important break from reality with a solid existence, as an alternative to the stress, fears and terror.
The festival is working to further initiatives that will bring the residence from the south of Israel to the theater performances and activities free of charge.
See you at the festival,
Theater Management, Staff and Artists.
The 23rd edition of the festival will take place during August 10-14, 2014.
