Theatre is alive, if it is able to translate its past experiences and future visions into a theatrical language that speaks to the modern viewer. It can speak through a depth of content or a surprise of form, or a symbiosis of both. The NuQ Treff festival is a wonderful opportunity to get a concentrated overview of what is currently in the air – in terms of content as well as form.
The renewed and henceforth biennial NuQ Treff is a festival curated by an artistic council that keeps a finger on the pulse of contemporary puppet, object and visual theatre, searching for an inspiring dialogue of form and content, tradition and innovation.
The festival repertoire comprises programmes for children and youth as well as adults, featuring internationally outstanding shows as well as exploratory productions of NUKU Theatre. The festival is, of course, also a communication environment for practitioners, with meetings in workshops and lectures and discussions in the festival club.
Headliners of this year’s festival are Plexus Polaire, Ruslan Kudashov and St Petersburg Grand Puppet Theatre, Hijinx Theatre in association with Blind Summit, Engineering Theatre AKHE, Non Nova, Puppet’s Lab and many more.
