may 24 to june 2 2019


The international figuren.theater.festival Erlangen, Nuremberg, Fürth, Schwabach – one of the largest and most significant festivals in Europe for contemporary puppet, image and object theatre, acts as the interface between dance, performance art and new media. The next edition will take place from May 24 to June 2 2019 with around 70 companies from all over the world presenting their work in over 100 performances within the metropolitan area. The international figuren.theater.festival has taken it upon itself to question popular genre traditions and to foster the artistic encounters of varying branches as well as differing perspectives and ingrained views. At the same time, the biennale holds tight to its origins in the classic puppet, image and object theatre.

Programme information regarding the 21th international figuren.theater.festival will be available on our website as of spring 2019.
