Novi Sad Theatre Games and “Gulliver’s Travels”
May 7 - May 15
The first edition of the International Children’s Theatre Festival by the Novi Sad Youth Theatre “Novi Sad Theatre Games” and the premiere of the play “Gulliver’s Travels”, directed by Kokan Mladenović, awaits us from 7 to 15 May 2022, within the Future of Europe programme arch.
The festival hosts the meetings of famous professional puppet theatres from Serbia and Europe and provides some new readings of fairy tales and expeditions into about forty magical stories.
A classic of European satirical and children’s literature, “Gulliver’s Travels” by Jonathan Swift, will take the audience to unforgettable theatrical magic. The play “Gulliver’s Travels”, directed by Kokan Mladenović, will feature giant Guignol puppets, extremely attractive and vividly visible, with the entire actors’ ensemble from the Youth Theatre participating in the staging. Following the travelogue structure of the original work, the play will take place on six different points, and the audience’s and participants’ path from point A to point B will be creatively conceived, with special effects, moving scenery and live music. Each of the points will present one of the six most interesting adventures from “Gulliver’s Travels”, while Gulliver himself will be represented by a five-metre puppet and a 30-centimetre puppet, and a live actor as well.
Venue: Youth Theatre
