24. international figuren.theater.festival

The international figuren.theater.festival, which is held every two years, ranks as one of the most important festivals of its kind in Europe. In a ten-day marathon, some 70 theatre companies from more than 20 countries perform modern puppet, image and object theatre in around 100 shows in Erlangen, Nuremberg, Fürth and Schwabach.

The predominatly digital edition of the 22nd international figuren.theater.festival invites you to discover a whole range of innovative and creative formats that have developed in the field of virtual theatre in recent months. In around twenty elaborate projects – encounters on the phone, instagames, interactive performances, short films, lecture performances and live streams, most of them developed explicitly for virtual spaces – companies from Germany, Austria, El Salvador, France, Israel, Turkey, the USA and Switzerland will present an extensive programme that can be experienced at home, online or strolling through the festival cities.

Information in English on all productions presented without language or as a foreign language version can be found in the programme section under without words and foreign language
