Pre-opening day activities will begin Monday the 14th with the course taught by the prestigious teacher Karim Dakroub and that it will be titled 'PUPPETS AND SYMBOLIC TRANSFORMATION'.
This course lasts 5 days and on Saturday the 19th Professor Karim will present the results and conclusions of the workshop to the audience.
We are working hard to have the opening we all want.
We are still finalizing details and that is why the program that we present to you below is still provisional.
We recommend that you pay attention to the ours XXSS to have updated information about it all. You can also consult this website which we will constantly update to confirm the program of events.
Unique pieces can be found like a 1810 Laurent Mourguet puppet, puppets from the Thang Long Water Puppet Theater in Hanoi. Vietnam, Chinese shadows from the late 1800s, puppets from the Museo internazionale delle marionette Antonio Pasqualino in Palermo, UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage, among others.
These puppets tell us their own anecdotes showing the life and customs of their countries or their manipulators and builders.
One of the museum innovations is the treatment of the exhibited content. The puppets are grouped by modalities or techniques. This allows us to enjoy and compare the different forms, names, manipulations and characters of each puppetry technique, showing us how they change according to the country and culture where they originate.
Through this simile we can understand part of the story of the countries, territories or people who designed them.
