Sapporo Meets Buxton

Date: 28 July – 4 August 2009
Venue: Buxton Opera House and other venues
Tel: 01298 77440
Organiser: Funny Wonders Puppet Theatre Company in collaboration with Yamabiko-Za Children’s Theatre 

Buxton Puppet Festival, a partnership formed by the Buxton Opera House and Funny Wonders, will host a delegation of performers, workshop leaders and young people from Sapporo, Japan.
The group will collaborate with UK artists on an International Youth Production to be performed at Buxton Opera House and other venues, and there will be workshops on Japanese tradtional puppet theatre, Japanese drumming and traditional music and games.
Funny Wonders began in the late 1990s as a Saturday morning puppet-making club around a kitchen table – the name coming from a resourceful mother of six who had an old Derbyshire saying “You can do funny wonders with a pound of mince!”
Funny Wonders Voluntary Organisation was formed in 2000 to support local events, create and perform puppet shows, run workshops and since 2005 organise International Exchange projects.
