Virtual Program Launch on February 4 – 16th edition of Festival de Casteliers

The 16th edition of Festival de Casteliers will take place from March 3 to 17, 2021. The festival will present intimate shows for small groups of adults and children, with the expressed goal of rediscovering the pleasure of being together and fighting social isolation.

In solidarity with the local artistic community, the festival will present ten shows by Québec puppeteers at the Théâtre Outremont, the Maison internationale des arts de la marionnette (MIAM) and other local venues. The Marionnettes en vitrines! outdoor walkabout exhibition as well as a few new virtual activities will round off the program, for the enjoyment of as many people as possible and no matter what colour zone we may find ourselves in!
