BANSKÁ Bystrica’s Bábkové divadlo na Rázcestí (Puppet Theatre at the Crossroads) has launched a campaign, Divadlo dospelým! (Theatre to Adults!), to promote puppet theatre among adults and not just children.

The head of the theatre’s production and marketing department, Róbert Špoták, told the SITA newswire that the campaign will last until the end of June and will bring various unconventional, innovative activities intended to stimulate interest in the performing arts and culture.

These include various exhibitions installed in Banská Bystrica’s biggest shopping centre, screenings of videos, performances in a big tent, creative workshops and an open-doors day on April 1. The campaign started on February 15 with the staging of Milenky (Mistresses) by Austrian Nobel laureate Elfriede Jelinek. Puppeteers from Banská Bystrica staged the play as part of the project www.ruzovyamodrysvet.sk, which focuses on making the public more sensitive to gender issues.
