This page contains information about a past festival edition. View the latest edition here.

Bábkarská Bystrica is a platform for contemporary (non-)puppetry, uniting professional artists from all around the world. It is the only one international festival of puppetry in Slovakia and one of the most renowned ones. It creates space where professional art meets the public (performances for audiences of all ages, from toddlers to seniors). Our production for children follows non-commercial and unconventional trends, while the goal of our selection for adults is to emancipate adult puppetry. In the pandemic situation 2021, it is clear (obvious), that to organize THE INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL Bábkarská Bystrica which we intended to hold from 29th April to 2nd May 2021, will not be possible. The international festival is cancelled.
