17th Festival de Casteliers – Walkabout Exhibit and Shows for the Whole Family


Casteliers is delighted to announce that it will once again present live theatre during the 17th edition of Festival de Casteliers, from March 2 to 6, 2022 in Montréal.

This annual 11th art happening will showcase North American puppetry, with feature performances from Mexico, the United States, Ontario and Québec.

Festival de Casteliers will present a dozen shows, major exhibitions, and professional networking and awareness-raising activities that will appeal to and captivate young and old alike.

The festival will showcase seven shows specifically for family audiences, and five shows for adult audiences.

The much-anticipated Marionnettes en vitrines! walkabout exhibition will celebrate Vermont’s Bread and Puppet Theater’s 50 years of commitment to creating a better world through art, paperboard, and citizen engagement.

This year, the festival will kick off with ¡Burros!, a La Liga Teatro Elástico (Mexico) and Casteliers production.

This celebratory, medieval-era inspired deambulation will be performed on the church steps and inside St-Viateur Church in Outremont.

Then, rendezvous at Théâtre Outremont for Innamorati, a musical performance created by Quatuor Bozzini and renowned puppeteer Marcelle Hudon, presented by the Groupe Le Vivier.
