After a break of so many years, Budapest has a new private puppet theatre.

Having started up as a migrant theatre, and spent revolutionary years acting in the founders’ own home and then a theatre tent, Figurina finally embarked on the second 25 years of its existence in its own, permanent theatre building. The venue is a converted garage-workshop right close to Moszkva tér. This is a space we transformed after our own taste and with our own hands and opened to audiences in December 2008.

The opportunity to offer regular performances on a permanent basis in Budapest is a significant event not only for Figurina. It is an act which points beyond itself as regards the history of private puppet acting in this country, after such activity was completely non-existent during the previous regime. We plan to host visiting performances by other Hungarian, as well as foreign puppet theatres. Visits and donations are welcome at Figurina’s VARAGE workshop!

Tickets are sold at the venue, before the start of the performance. However, because the number of seats is limited, please book in advance, so you can be sure to get a place. You can book by e-mail (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or by text message (06-20-530-15-95). You can also book your place for a coming performance at the end of the show you visited. Please include in your booking the date and time of the performance you wish to see and the number of viewers, as well as a name by which to identify you on arrival. One booking should be for no more than 5 persons. For groups numbering more than ten we are happy to organise a special performance.
