Support usHelp us care for the Museum of Puppetry


March, 16, 2018

Dusted is a series of temporary exhibitions set up by the museum department of the Ljubljana Puppet Theatre at various locations, usually at the Ljubljana Puppet Theatre. These exhibitions were inspired by a wealth of puppetry heritage items stored at the Ljubljana Puppet Theatre depositories and archives which cannot be included as part of the permanent exhibition at Ljubljana Castle due to limited space. The idea behind the exhibitions is to bridge the gap, revive forgotten heritage, and introduce items that have been left out of the permanent exhibition to the public.

In addition to the items owned by the Theatre, the temporary exhibitions will also feature puppet heritage items lent by private owners. In collaboration with the Sigledal online portal, the exhibitions will be transferred into to a digital format and made available to the public after live exhibitions at this link. This way, we will make puppetry heritage more accessible for longer periods of time.

This year we will mark the 70th anniversary of the Ljubljana Puppet Theatre and on this occasion, we remember the first, the most successful, the most beautiful, best performed, and unforgettable performances with even greater nostalgia and fondness.

In 2018, we set up the following exhibitions: Big-Eyes the Little Owl, Martin Krpan, Jože Pengov - Glimpses, The Little Prince . This year we will bring you the exhibitions featuring puppets and scenography from The Tale of Tsar Saltan, The Two Wanderers, Little Red Riding Hood, and others.
