Puck Puppet Theater was founded in 1950 and is subordinated to the County Council of Cluj. The institution’s record includes 300 prizes, both in the Romanian and the Hungarian section, as well as important prizes and nominations. The current repertoire of the Puppet Theater Puck consists of about 25 shows for children. Also, in 2006 was released Nocturne program with dedicated performances for adults. Starting with 2002, the Cluj institution hosts the International Festival of Puppets and Puppets “Puck”, one of the important events of Cluj. In addition, starting with 2017 we managed to realize the biggest outdoor festival for children and family – WonderPUCK, where 17.000 people attended to our shows.
Our aim is to develop a long-term, collaborative, pan-European, trans-disciplinary project and to give opportunities of integration and cohesion whose aim is to promote a stronger cooperation among the cultural institutions, encouraging common activities and artistic events focused on arts of puppet theatre. Prerogative of the project is to raise awareness and spread the knowledge on puppet popular traditions of each partner through festivals, workshops, seminars and performing arts.
The project we are proposing is an ample manifestation by which we intend to create a bridge between the cultural institutions, artists, sociologists and the public on the East-West axis of Europe. In this context, cultural institutions, university institutions and educational institutions from six countries come together and support through different resources and activities a cultural-educational-scientific approach that aims to achieve the following objectives: trans-nationality, education and research in the field of puppet art.
