Magical shadows

The shadow theatre is the oldest form of puppetry art in the world and in fact it originates from the times when people lived in caves and the flames of fire around which they sat were throwing shadows on the walls of the caves.

2018 is the year of cultural heritage, so as part of the Magic shadows programme, we will present in an attractive way all four forms of shadow theatre, which are under the protection of UNESCO.

The programme is also suitable as the content of a technical or cultural day, and the content and length can be adjusted to the age and interests of the participants.

The Minorite trail

In the autumn of 2010, the Maribor Puppet Theatre moved to the premises of the renovated Minorite Monastery from the 13th century. The complex, which is inhabited by the theatre and covers also the Minorite Church, is an important and interesting record of the history of Maribor. The Minorite trail leads you through the old corridors and basements, all the way to the restored church, while we present you the history of the monastery.

Discussions on performances

Each performance opens up known and new topics, raises questions and spreads horizons. Therefore, in Maribor Puppet Theatre, after the performance, we organize discussions on performance, involving artists from the performance, specialists in the field of education, arts, psychology and other relevant fields. The discussions are intended for pedagogical workers, parents and all those who recognize theatre as a learning area.
