FIMFA Lx10 celebrates 10 years!


th to 30th of May 2010

The International Festival of Puppetry and Animated Forms – FIMFA Lx is one of the most important festivals of puppetry and theatre in Portugal. Running since 2001, the festival is organized and produced annually by the company A Tarumba-Teatro de Marionetas.

FIMFA Lx is an artistic project, open to new tendencies, of international dimension presenting an artistic and technical high level programme, with a very contemporary point of view.

Since its first edition, confront and innovation are characteristics of this event, by presenting a programme that combines the newest technologies with the most traditional puppet companies, and projects with very elemental techniques, performed in an experimental and contemporary way.

The Festival aims to introduce different styles of puppetry and an artistic transversality by presenting a big diversity of techniques (shadows, objects, full-view manipulation, visual theatre, etc), to the Portuguese audience, and to be a moment of shared experiences to artists and performers.

In each edition, FIMFA intends to bring together the interest of artists, critics and theatre programmers, creating relations between directors and public, arts and languages, theatre and schools, universities and institutions.

Each year, the Festival invites a wide range of international companies to perform in the best theatres of Lisbon, like Teatro Nacional D. Maria II, Teatro Maria Matos, Museu da Marioneta, Museu do Oriente or Centro Cultural de Belém. The Festival is also extended to other cities in the country like Guarda - Teatro Municipal da Guarda.

On the tenth edition, running from 6th to 30th of May, the highlights of FIMFA Lx10 will be Hotel Modern (Shrimp Tales), Roman Paska (Schoolboy Play), Figuren Theater Tübingen (Salto. Lamento), WHS - Ville Walo & Kalle Hakkarainen (Keskusteluja -Discussions), Alfa Theatre (The Three Musketeers), Hermanos Oligor (Las Tribulaciones de Virgínia), Stephen Mottram (The Seed Carriers), Cie Gare Centrale (Troubles: ô!..., iii!..., ah!), Theater Taptoe (Geneviève… si chaste, si pure), Musiscoop (Giant Light Circus), Claus Knecht Großmann (Grete L. und ihr K.), amongst other companies.
