about us


From its early beginnings (1984) the typical suitcase theatre in 1993, becomes a professional family theatre, known for bringing famous children fairy tales to life with puppet images. Accompanied by live music the performance of both performers, unveils the mysterious world of objects which come to life. Child-like, simple objects are magically transformed into puppets and so become part of the world reality.

In twenty years this family theatre grew into a repertory theatre with over 250 shows per year, suitable for kids from age 2 and above. The FRU-FRU Puppet theatre works with renowned directors of puppet shows, artists, authors, musicians and actors, and performs throughout Slovenia and for Slovenes living across the border. On an international level it cooperates with similar cultural centres and is taking part at prestigious international festivals in Belgium, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, USA, Russia, Croatia, Poland etc. The FRU-FRU Puppet theatre received several acknowledgements and won many awards. The theatre is also active in organizing events and festivals for children in the area of the Municipality of Ljubljana, is associated in co-production with House of Children and Art (Hiša otrok in umetnosti) and other non-governmental cultural organizations.
