Transcarpathian family of Buratino and Pinocchio celebrate the World Puppetry Day (PHOTOS)
March 21 is the World Puppetry Day.
The idea of this holiday was suggested by the famous puppetry figure Javad Zolfaghari (Iran).
In 2000 at the XVIII Congress of the Union Internationale de la Marionnette, (UNIMA) in Magdeburg, he made the proposal for discussion.
Two years later, at a meeting of the International Council of UNIMA in June 2002 in Atlanta, the date of the celebration was identified. The first celebration was in 2003.
In Uzhgorod, we have people to congratulate on this holiday too. From Uzhgorod.in - three most popular puppeteers.
"She does not like when her works are called "toys." At the same time, she admits that she plays with them. But they are not toys, they are little people, the artist emphasizes. While other people paint or sculpt, she creates people. Well, almost people" - this is how Alla Hayatova described the work of the wonderful puppeteer.
Instead, the puppet universe of the famous painter Olga Skakandiy is a reflection of the real world of people. Her characters are portrait copies of well-known personalities. The artist started making them not so long ago. But the list of her doll miniatures is already quite large and, it seems, will continue to expand!
The fantasy world of Marina Fedchik known for her handmade collection is full of fictional characters that can brighten the lives of both children and adults alike. She seems to be able to convey her optimistic worldview in any character: a beetle and a princess, a bunny and a sailor. Her works seem to have been created in order to bring fairy-tale light and hope to everyday life!
Transcarpathian puppeteers sincerely congratulate their colleagues and fans of puppetry on the World Puppetry Day and World Theater Day and invite to Sunday shows!
