The Tolosa International Puppets Festival will focus in the next edition on Swiss puppets.

Titirijai 2010 came to an end yesterday after nine days of performances and is looking forward for the next edition, which will have Switzerland as the guest country. In the current edition, the twenty-eighth one, there were displayed 56 plays in various venues in Tolosa and 24 more performances in the circuit around the province that has brought some of the Festival’s shows to different locations.

Alone in Tolosa the festival has exceeded eleven thousand spectators, around two thousand less spectators in comparison with the 2008 edition, the last one before the big economic crises, which has had a negative bearing on all cultural events. However, the average assistance to each show has considerably increased since there have been 21 performances less in Tolosa comparing to those staged in 2008. On the other hand, the Japanese puppet exhibition, which is opened until the 7th of December at Palacio Aranburu, has had at the time of writing some 10.000 visitors.

The artistic assessment of the Tolosa Puppet International Festival is good, according to Miguel Arreche, co director of Titirijai along with Idoya Otegui. In his opinion, “this has been an interesting festival, with some shows that have delighted the audience and others that have created controversy, which it seems to me it is a positive aspect in a festival”. There was also what Arreche calls “some disappointments”. He refers to “those shows with a contemporary touch coming from Japan, with too much western influence, as if it was a kind of Disneyland. However, the classic Japanese puppet works have definitely captivated both professionals and the general public.

A long weekend to watch puppets at Topic
Monday, 06 December 2010 10:36

From Monday until Wednesday there are scheduled three outstanding plays that have previously been performed at Titirijai

After the end of Titirijai last Sunday, puppets keep being the protagonists in Tolosa with the staging of three puppet plays from the 6th of December until the 8th of December and various companies coming from France, Italy and Argentina. The three plays have taken part at the Tolosa Puppet International Festival. All three shows are scheduled at six in the evening.

The French company ‘Lutin Theatre d’Images’ (pictured) opens this extended program for December’s long weekend. Their show ‘Linea(s) de Horizonte’ (Horizon lines) has been premiered at Titirijai and it is a co production with the Topic. As one of the members of the company explains, Stephanie Chirron “this show departed from the idea of working on paper and about the writing. And more precisely is about the transition from drawing to writing. It is a work that tells the story of a person in the privacy of her study, that lets her imagination soar. It is a route from the essence of drawing, which departs from a line in the horizon, a thread. And little by little it creates lives on imaginary characters that go out from her emotions”.

The Tolosa International Puppets Festival gives the start to the scholar’s program and it presents two premieres.

After the intense start of this past weekend with the staging of three shows and the opening of the exhibition about Japanese puppets, Titirijai 2010 continues its program with the beginning of the children’s program that come to Tolosa along with their schools. From now on, until Friday, there will be a total of 41 performances reserved for the youngest audience that will turn up to Tolosa along with their school centers. The Festival receives around 1.500 spectators each day in this section, taking into account that most of the times the children, coming from different parts of Gipuzkoa and some from the neighboring provinces, watch more than one puppet’s performance in their day visit to Tolosa. In these first days of the Festival there will be premiered two plays for the first time.
Titirijai enters its final stage with an intense program

Until Sunday there are offered eight performances that are open to the general public and another sixteen for scholars

The Tolosa Puppets International Festival, Titirijai, enters its last four days, in which it offers a very intense program, with eight performances open to the general public and sixteen that are limited for the children that arrive to Tolosa with their schools.

Today Thursday the company from Andalucía ‘Títeres Caracartón’ presents their show ‘The last pirate’, a play for all audiences where an old pirate, maybe the very last pirate crossing the seas, is the main character. Later on there will be a performance that generally children like a lot, but specially delight the adults. It is ‘Yoshitune and the thousand flowered cherry trees’, of the Japanese company Otome Bunraku. A delicate and exquisite sample of the traditional puppetry of the Asian country. A pearl that is very hard to see around and that Titirijai offers as part of the special program dedicated this year to the Japanese puppets.

On Friday, 3rd of December, it is the turn for the show that has received some very prestigious awards. It is ‘Guyi Guyi’, (pictured) of ‘Periferia Teatro’ from Murcia. They have win, among others, the awards for the best direction and interpretation at the Lleida Puppets Festival 2010 and the award for the best show at the European Fair of Theatre for Children (FETEN), also this 2010. ‘Guyi Guyi’ is a free version of the well-known tale ‘The ugly duckling’.
