Welcome to Synergura 2022 - finally!


It's been four years since our last festival. After such a long time without international exchange, the ensemble of the Theater Waidspeicher is happy and proud to be able to welcome you to its 13th International Puppet Theatre Festival. We invited artists from eight countries – Belgium, Denmark, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Spain, the Czech Republic and the USA – to Thuringia's state capital.
Dear theatre friends, you can experience outstanding productions in 37 events over five festival days in various venues in our beautiful city. Be enchanted and inspired by the diversity of our unique form of theatre.

My warmest thanks go to all the supporters of the festival, our local partners and, above all, my team at Theater Waidspeicher, who prepared Synergura 2022 with me over many months under the difficult conditions of the pandemic.

I wish us all joy and a wonderful festival!
