«…demons torment the soul. Angels stand guard…
The man crucified on the cross of his own passions, but not everyone is gifted with the miracle of resurrection…
It's for the first time when the cherished was told about in literary Ukrainian. The spoken is still unspoken…
Ivan Kotliarevskyi's personal tragedies turned into the feelings and actions of the drama characters …
The play turned into the film, where the author played the tough part of his own life, and where he was a participant and a judge at a time.
Pages, that saved not at once understandable words -- scattered by stage of the hurricane of time…
Will it be possible to reach, to finally read their hidden sense, to make them alive again after 200 years?..
…demons torment the soul. Angels stand guard…»

Lace of Tales

The Puppet Theatres Festival of Ukraine "Lace of Tales".

The Puppet Theatres Festival of Ukraine "Lace of Tales" was founded in 2010 on the base of Cherkassy Academic Puppet Theatre of Cherkasy Regional Council.
The name of the festival is borrowed from the well-known poetry of Ukrainian poet, Cherkasy citizen Vasyl Symonenko "What a world! It is a lace of tales! .."
Festival objectives are to popularize the art of Puppet Theatre in Cherkasy region, to deepen creative contacts between professional puppet theatres of Ukraine, to promote innovative artistic searches in the state puppet theatres in Ukraine.
Any professional puppet theatre of Ukraine, as well as from abroad, state or private theatre with performances for both children and adults can participate in the festival. The festival has no thematic restrictions.
The festival is competitive. Winners in the traditional nominations (the best role, the best directing, etc.) are determined according to the results of the Festival Jury work.
The main innovation in organization of the festival work is that the members of the Jury should now be representatives of participating collectives who have professional experience and trust of the colleagues (delegated by the team one by one).
It is held once in two years.
There were five festivals in total (2010, 2012, 2015, 2017, 2019) attended by regional and municipal puppet theatres from Dnipro, Kropyvnytskyi, Poltava, Khmelnytskyi, Lviv, Ivano-Frankivsk, Rivne, Donetsk, Ternopil, Zaporizhzhia, Zhytomyr, Kryvyi Rih, as well as theatres from Belarus, Moldova, Argentina and Chile.
