Greek Puppet Theatre
New season 2010-2011 Εκτύπωση

Dear Friends,

The puppet theatre in Greece I think is in its best. New talented puppeteers with their own personal view create new troupes that along with some old ones create a very interesting landscape of subjects, performances and animation.
Teachers and parents must keep looking for good performances and reward them with their choice.
The "Greek Puppet Theatre" presents for another year a rich and alternating repertory with performances for children as well as for adults, because we should not forget that puppet theatre is not just for children.

 
The beginning Εκτύπωση

The Greek Puppet Theatre was founded in February 1978 by Takis Sarris and Mina Sarris.

So far has given over 3000 performances in Athens and in many cities of Greece and also has engaged in various festivals both in Greece and abroad.

The main objective of THE GREEK PUPPET THEATRE is experimentation, dissemination and development of the art of Puppetry, mainly through workshops, lectures and specialized seminars for children and adults.
So far has raised 24 projects, has taken part in international festivals and exhibitions and has organized a large number of seminars for children and adults.

It is true that 30 years are too many and there are too many people - I can not call one to one without forgetting someone - that without their help we would not exist today. Because it is a very difficult course. You need encouragement, a good cause and financial help, and there were people who helped us in one way or another.

The GREEK PUPPET THEATRE acquired friends who are friends of the puppet theatre as well as our own friends and loved ones. Without them we would not have done anything.

 
The course Εκτύπωση

The course of the "Greek Puppet Theatre" includes the production of the 20 plays and almost 3200 performances from one end of Greece to the other.
Key priorities of this course are the educational work of the "Greek Puppet Theatre", courses, seminars and visits of children and adults at the workshop. Important stages where are also the exhibitions, the participation in international festivals and films. The common feature of all these is the anxiety about the emergence of new modes of expression through the puppet. The course of the "Greek Puppet Theatre" wagon that continues, meets the course of the development of Greek puppetry.

Theatre critic Leo Polenakis in his review pubished in the newspaper "Avgi" in 31.1.1991 on the occasion of the performances of "The flower of the sea" of Mina Sarris, notes among others:
"I have already mentioned the serious, total in all respects (aesthetic, artistic, educational) work done by the "Greek Puppet Theatre" of Takis Sarris and his associates ... On the other hand the non-stop efford for so many years of the "Greek Puppet Theatre" gives it at this time the right to claim the title of the best."
