‘Earlier this year from May 20th -23rd, I visited the 19th Subotica Festival of Children’s Theatre in Serbia. Following a flight to Budapest, I was met by a festival representative and driven for a couple of hours to the quiet town of Subotica, a stone’s throw from the Hungarian border. The festival is an efficiently run event which takes place over 6 days and in 2 main venues – the National Theatre for Children (main house and studio) and the University. This year, there was a major focus on puppetry, so it was of particular interest to me as Artistic Director of Little Angel Theatre in London www.littleangeltheatre.com. 21 companies were invited to perform , mostly from Eastern Europe but also representatives from Chile, Egypt, France, Italy, Spain and the UK (String theatre).
