Puppet-theatre with seven, big dolls
After two successful Astrid Lindgren productions of theater tabor -"Pippi Longstocking", and "Michel in the soup bowl" - the team is now venturing on a new form: „Puppet-theatre“ . Not as you might think with handpuppet characters, but with seven big dolls, alternately attached to the bodies of three actresses and one actor. These were handmade by the traditional puppet- manufacturers „XYDART“ in Lviv (Ukraine).
Ronja was born in the night as Mattis-castle broke into two halves by a violent thunderstorm. A sign? The daughter of Mattis grew up in untamed nature where she witnessed exciting adventures that made her strong and brave. On one of her trips through the forests she met Birk, the son of Mattis´ arch-enemy Borka. And the peace seemed lost forever. Ronja and Birk decided to go away together and enjoyed a great summer of freedom in a bear cave.
tabor theater is a group of the Upper Austrian- Russian directorAnatoly Gluchov. 2-3 plays are staged on average per year, including several world premieres in Austria. Recognition tabor gets not only at the growing core audience, but also in international circles. For example, the theater won in October 2001 at the International Theatre Festival Magnitogorsk (Russia) the coveted award for the"Best Performance of a Russian Classic Play". Another highlight is the successful participation in October 2002-2012 at the International Theatre Festival "Golden Lion" in Lviv (Ukraine).
