The Festival of Matanzas and Titirijai announce a twinning initiative
Wednesday, 25 April 2012 15:52
The Cuban International Puppet Festival of Matanzas and the Titirijai have reached a collaborative agreement.

The Puppet Festivals of Matanzas and Tolosa have established a twinning and exchange agreement aimed at reaffirming their commitment to a “world full of art and peace”, according to the document signed by the two organizations.

Miguel Arreche, director of the Tolosa Festival, attended the twinning ceremony and he was offered the Matanzas Festival mascot as a gift and a souvenir of the event. Arreche, from his side, gave the Cuban Festival a reproduction of Mariona, Topic’s icon. The person who received this gift was René Fernández, president of the Matanzas International Puppet Festival.

Gus Puppets present the play ‘Liburuzaina estu eta larri’ on Saturday the 21st of April.
Tuesday, 17 April 2012 12:16

The play is a theatre version of the book ‘The Librarían and the Robbers’ by the writer Margaret Mahy from New Zealand

 It’s a story about the importance of literature and the transformative power of the stories within. The story of the play is revealed to the audience through the adventures of a librarian, Ms. Pindelbum, who is forced to spend some days in a hide-out belonging to some evil bandits. Throughout this time she’ll manage to rekindle her love of reading and literature.

The main technique we find in this play is the Table Top Puppet technique (Bunraku), although Shadow Puppets intervene too, and the audience can see how they are operated. The play takes place in a peculiar and dynamic stage: a suitcase.
Visits to Topic at Easter Have increased by 27%
Friday, 13 April 2012 13:15
Topic has broken its record and has received 428 visitors in five days

This figure implies a 27% increase in comparison with last year’s attendance figures.

Even though the number of visits to the International Puppet Centre has increased, the number of people who have visited Tolosa and the nearby towns hasn’t, these have seen a slight decrease.  This makes the increase in the number of people who have come and visited Topiceven more relevant.
Topic’s new exhibition focuses on African masks that are practically unknown in Europe
Tuesday, 28 February 2012 17:08
A new temporary exhibition, this time dedicated to Gelede and Efe masks, is opening at Topic

The distinctive thing about these African masks is that they carry puppets or articulated dolls on top of them, and they come from Benin and Nigeria.

The collection that can be seen in Tolosa, belongs to the private Dutch collection of Ursela Voorhuis. It contains 43 unique masks that have only ever been exhibited at the International Puppet Festival in Dordrecht in 2010 and now here, in Tolosa. But this will be the first time that Gelede and Efe Masks will have been exhibited together.
On Friday the 30th of March Topic dresses up to celebrate World Puppet and Theatre Day
Tuesday, 27 March 2012 10:30
A play by Teatro Estudio and a workshop for children will complete the program for that day

World Puppet Day, held last March 21st , and World Theatre Day, next March 27th , will have their sequel at Topic on Friday 30th with different acts programmed from the morning until the evening. The celebration will end with a party at the Tolosa International Puppet Centre cantina.

It will all start at noon with the showing of a play for Secondary and A-level students. They will attend the staging of Juan Mayorga’s play “El chico de la última fila” by the Teatro Estudio company from San Sebastian. The play will be shown again for the general public at 20.00h in the evening. It tells the story of the relationship between a teacher and an outstanding student in a class where nobody else cares much about literature.
