"Når du tænker på dukketeater, forestiller du dig så noget traditionelt, hvor det mest tekniske er et stykke snor? Københavns aller første internationale dukketeaterfestival skulle meget gerne sætte en stopper for den slags fordomme…"

− Copenhagen Post

"Der er noget, der taler for at dukker kan være en vej til at få sjælen og legen tilbage i teatret. Det er i det hele taget derfor at Copenhagen Puppet Festival for anden gang har opfundet sig selv; for at manifestere dukketeatret som en vigtig faktor i fornyelsen af Scenekunsten."

− Politiken

"Dukker er også for voksne, siger de hos Copenhagen Puppet Festival. Jo tak. Man skal faktisk være temmelig voksen for at klare mosten."

Copenhagen Puppet Festival - Powered by Puppets! Yet another great Thursday work-meeting in our brilliant team. Bearing in mind that all organizing of the festival is done on a voluntary basis it's amazing all the things we've got going. Note May 14th-17th 2015 in your diaries and keep your fingers crossed that all the funding falls in place - in which case you'll experience the festival like it's never been seen before. The theme is "Puppets in Politics" - and boy are we going to take a political stand. ... See MoreSee Less

It's here! The puppetmentary “Neighborly” produced as part of the 10 year Jubilee.
