Puppetry always reflected the turbulent history of Poland. Once symbol of resistance to the invader and propaganda tool, this art is now at the forefront of modernity. Following the best creative artists, we are invited to visit the most important sites of their world : Baj Theatre in Warsaw, National Academy of Bialystok, Pinokio Theatre in Lodz… A journey through time that immerse the audience into a world of masterful poetry, thanks to magical shows, talented writers like Bruno Shulz and Ignacy Karpowicz and directors like Konrad Dworakowksi.
