Incanti 2020 Special Edition - online events

Behind the scenes

When finished a Puppet show it’s always difficult to exit the magic created by the shadows, puppets, images and objects and leave the theatre room. Strong stimulus drives audience’s curiosity going to peek behind the scenes. Thus, compensating the difficulties in bringing to Turin shows from all over the world as usual, Incanti 2020 special edition has organized a series of online events to bring the audience behind the scenes of Puppetry, aimed to understanding the atrical mechanisms and meeting the artists. We hope turning this complicated and unhappy situation into a chance for satisfying audience’s curiosity by peeking where it is usually not granted.

We thank all the companies for allowing us to use their “behind the scenes” material.
