Alice in Paperland is a tribute to the world of books and writers such as Lewis Carroll.

Alice, created from paper, is like a character from a dream, and chasing a rabbit with a clock is like a race against time… And it seems that we are always late in it. Thus, all of us, not only during the period of growing up, but also in various life circumstances, find that we are sometimes unusual: too big or too small, sometimes even unable to understand the logic or rules of others. This world seems strange or even cruel to us. But the focal point of exploring this world is us. We who are trying to answer the question of who we are.

Because the world is formed through our eyes and by the reflection of ourselves in others.

MARIBOR PUPPET THEATRE

Maribor Puppet Theatre was founded on 8 December 1973, through the merging of two amateur puppet theatres in the city. The beginnings of Maribor puppetry go as far back as the period between the two world wars. The 1974-1975 season is considered the first professional season of the newly founded puppet theatre. The mission of the Maribor Puppet Theatre is the production and post-production of puppet shows for all age groups in their own space, in Slovenia and around the world. The basic guideline in creating the theatre’s programme is the quality selection of texts, themes, and artistic collaborators. In addition to its basic mission, the employees are committed to developing supporting content (cultural education in puppetry and puppetry heritage) and ensuring the infrastructure for artists in the city who do not have a space for their performances – contemporary dance, film culture, music, independent theatre.
