9th INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL FOR CHILDREN - MINI SUMMER 2007
Mini Summer 2007: from June 17 to September 6, 2007
From June 17 until September 6, the 9th festival MINI SUMMER organized by MINI TEATER will take place in Ljubljana.
This international summer festival of puppets and theatre has been taking place in the Ljubljana Castle or in other locations every summer Sunday since 1999. According to great response, it has gradually turned into one of the greatest festivals for children in Slovenia.
This year the festival will host 24 different performances from different European theatres. Beside performances for children we will also present an exceptional puppet performance for adults – The Vampire – performed by Stuffed Puppet Theatre from The Netherlands. The programme for children will present theatres, groups and individuals from Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Spain, France, Romania, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland and Brasil. Beside performances we will organize also creative workshops for children, the Pagean School for young pages and dames, and the exhibition of puppets created by Silvan Omerzu and presented under the title Tears.
In eight years the festival has gained great international reputation, good critics of the professional public, and an extraordinary high number of spectators of all ages. Different languages, different puppet techniques and different approaches to puppetry art have placed the international festival Mini Summer among events contributing to a richer and more precious cultural image of Ljubljana and of Slovenia.
