Pop Arts Festival 2014Festivals / Amsterdam
February 01-09, Various times
Since 2010, the festival's main goal has been to offer a platform dedicated to demonstrating the latest performances and developments in puppet and object theatre.
The Pop Arts Festival seeks to highlight how puppetry, an oft-overlooked discipline, and its associated aesthetic forms have been incorporated into the visual arts, contemporary music, game design and animation.
More than just a series of performances, the festival maintains a focus on further advancing the puppetry scene through networking events, informative workshops and engaging debates.
