The Albanian capital is hosting the International Puppet Theatre Festival, with theatre troupes from 12 countries and regions around the world participating.

Puppet theatre troupes from Russia, Brazil, Belgium, UK, Tunisia, Bulgaria, Egypt, Spain, Italy, Germany, Albania and Kosovo will showcase for one week their original works.

The Albanian troupe started the festival with the show Three Pigs on Friday evening.

"Our first aim is cultural exchange, to take the world's experiences on how a puppet theater is developed, and to introduce other troupes to Albania," said Erion Isai, director of the Puppet Theater.

Shegushe Bebeti, an actress from the Albanian Puppet Theater, said the program of the festival will include a variety of different puppet shows for kids, families, adults, which will help all the troupes not only to gain experiences, but also to learn from each other.

From May 3 to 9, children and adults alike will have the opportunity to enjoy the magic of puppet shows at the Puppet Theatre of the capital.
