Festival di Morgana

not awarded

The Festival di Morgana is an international puppet festival organised since 1975 by the Association for the Conservation of Folk Traditions – “Antonio Pasqualino” International Puppet Museum of Palermo (Italy). The Festival promotes both popular and contemporary culture with particular reference to puppetry. The FdM promotes the trans-national mobility of cultural operators and the trans-national circulation of artistic and cultural works and products by collaborating with a high number of international festivals and associations, theatrical companies and artists. The Festival di Morgana promotes intercultural dialogue since its first edition by adopting an interdisciplinary approach (puppetry, music, visual arts and heritage are often present at the same time) and proposing programmes which have always promoted an exchange between popular and cultivated theatre, art and music, also focusing on contemporary puppet theatre in relation to the field of performing arts, heritage and culture in general. Moreover, the Festival brings to life the museum’s exhibits in various performances and invites international companies to participate from as far afield as Bali and Vietnam. Through the art and shared language of puppetry cultural exchange between far-flung countries is possible, enhanced by exhibitions, films and talks. The Festival, usually held in November, takes a different annual theme. In 2016 we we will host the XLII edition of the Festival di Morgana. In November, the Pasqualino Musem will host a series of events which continue the passionate work begun by Antonio Pasqualino and his wife Marianne Vibaek in the Sixties, aimed to safeguard and promote Sicilian folk traditions combined with the focus on foreign and contemporary theatrical prctices. The Festival is directed by Rosario Perricone and organised by the Association for the Conservation of Folk Traditions in collaboration with a number of local, national and international organizations.
