Albania is holding a Puppet Theatre Festival this week welcoming theatre troupes from five countries that will introduce different forms of use and communication through puppets, exchange of experiences, traditions and cultures of different countries.

From May 27 to June 1, the participating theatre troupes and companies from China, Spain, Turkey, Romania and Albania will perform their theater works, valued at international awards.

Albanian troupe will perform on Tuesday with the show Don Quixote.

"Seeing in the context of a novelty of classical literature implemented for different ages for families, we think it was the best choice to be represented at the international puppet festival," says Klajd Ymeri, director of the performance and of the festival.

Through the cultural exchange, this project aims to recognize the spectator and artists of this genre in the country, with new forms and contemporary concepts of different countries in the world, creating the possibility of qualitative cultivation of this artistic and educational genre.

Sonila Kapidani, director of the "Metropolitan Theater" in Tirana, said, "We have seen this festival as a strong point of meeting, inter-cultural exchange of experiences."

On the closing day, the festival will be opened with an ethnographic exhibition of works by different authors from Albanian-speaking lands at the Albanian National Museum.

Appearances are given on an open stage for the afternoon public even in main "Skanderbeg" square of the capital.
