Giant puppets in Pilsen
In Pilsen you will between 28 and 30 August meet twelve-metre-tall marionettes, a twenty-metre-long dragon and ...
The giant puppets will be joined in the streets of Pilsen by Dutch animal puppets by La Pavana; the theatre tent Theatre Risorius from France; local masters from the Divadlo V boudě and many other puppet companies. The centre of Pilsen will be filled with puppet theatre from afternoon till evening. One puppet show will be performed every hour at one of the stages on Republic Square, in the park ring or in the Puppet Museum. There will be workshops around the city centre enabling visitors both small and big to make puppets. Visitors will meet the giant puppets in the afternoon and then attend the grandiose site-specific show La Niña in the streets of Pilsen in the evening. The giant puppets and dozens of Czech dancers, musicians and acrobats with a big helium balloon will create a procession show which will start on Republic Square and end in DEPO2015.
For the first time in the history of the company, all eight puppets will perform together. It will be their premiere in the Czech Republic. Experience a unique story in which each puppet has its character and human friends who help create it. The show also includes an original musical score, acrobatics and a fascinating lighting.
Carros De Foc is an internationally unique theatre group from Alicante, Spain that has been working with giant puppets and creating parade shows for more than 20 years. This group has presented their work in numerous countries, worked in China for over a year, celebrated a big success in Latin America, Dubai, Qatar, Morocco and many European cities.
