The exhibition receives the name of ‘Indonesia, Wayang Golek, it exhibits a total of 91 puppets, ninety of them being rod puppets and one shadow puppet. All of them belong to the Tolosa International Puppet Centre’s own private collection.

‘Indonesia, Wayang Golek’ is the fourth temporary exhibition that Topic organizes since its opening back in November 2009. The first one was dedicated to “Puppets from Mali”, and followed by “China, characters of tradition” and “30 years of animated dolls”.

The exhibition now being inaugurated will remain open until the 31st of January. In the current exhibition, the visitors will find themselves with puppets owing a well-defined presence, “since they combine both manipulating techniques with aesthetic”, explains Maria San Sebastian, in charge of the Documentation Centre and Museum of Topic. “However, she continues, and despite of their similar appearance, each one of them is different from the rest regarding the headdress, clothing and skin pigmentation”.

After decades serving familiar cleanliness and hygiene, the piping of Mr. Manuel’s bath needs an urgent intervention of a professional… and there it comes the evil plumber Dr. Teflon, who using his bad and false fixings, goes from bath to bath with a sole idea: “to collect as much fresh water as possible”.

Un encantado encuentro con el teatro de sombras.

La compañía Teatro Plus la presenta el sábado 23 de octubre

"Descubrimos la complejidad, la delicadeza y la hermosura de esta técnica. Contar una historia sólo con el lenguaje de las marionetas y la música fue un reto", explican los responsables de teatro Plus. "Hicimos un espectáculo bonito, para disfrutar viéndolo. Una obra donde la luz y la sombra se unen para crear un canto a la belleza de la Tierra. El regalo, un farolito, que llevamos dentro".
