Throughout the years many professional Danish as well as international theatre groups have visited the Festival of Wonder: Silkeborg International Puppet Theater Festival.
The festival presents object and visual puppet theater for children and adults. There are workshops for both professionals and families, movies and exhibitions.
The intention with the international theatres is to show innovative and experimental performances and plays, that haven't been shown in Denmark before, that can add something new to the genre and that are inspirational for both audience and other theatres. This also goes for the selected exhibitions, movies and workshops.
We are always updated on the development on the Danish and international theater stage and the profile of the festival changes according to this development.
In 2007, 25 theatres showed 100 plays for 9000 children and adults. And that did not include all the movies, the exhibitions and the workshops. Performances were shown in theaters, museums, libraries, churches, cinemas, streets, community schools and cultural centers.
