temporary exhibition


Besides the permanent exhibition, TOPIC has a space dedicated to temporary exhibitions that in a monographic way pretends to open new windows to particular aspects of the puppetry universe, always surprising. The Centre will schedule around three annual temporary exhibitions.

The Topic dedicates its new temporary exhibition to hero of the Galician tradition, 'Barriga Verde'. From the 18rd of March to the 8th of October.

With this exhibition, TOPICs’ 19th temporary exhibition, we jump around from the extremest contemporary puppet of Joan Baixas or Zahra Sabri, to a traditional Galician character of the late XIXth century. But this is one of the tasks of our Center, to show the diversity of the world of puppetry. To show what is done today, even what we sometimes find difficult to understand, at the same time as teaching the most traditional puppetry forms, some in danger of disappearing and other unfortunately already disappeared that are trying to be recovered, as the case that brings us this exhibition.

Barriga Verde is probably the youngest representative of the characters emerged from the Commedia dell’Arte as Mr. Punch, Mr. Guignol, Don Cristobal, etc.

José Silvent, the artist who created the character, learned the technique in Portugal. Later on, they began their activity as street artists, and afterwards they moved on to a stall where, in addition to their puppet shows, they offered film and dance. But what really attracted the public were his puppet acts.

Today our friends from the association Morreu o Demo para a recuperación do títere tradicional galego (for the recovery of the traditional Galician puppet) are working to make us aware of these traditions and we are pleased to welcome them and help them in this recovery work which, as I said at the beginning of this text, is one of our objectives-

We hope you like the Hero of the Galician tradition, Barriga Verde. Let's welcome him to our Puppet House, to TOPIC!
