Figura Theaterfestival

Tue, 18. June 2024 - 23. June 2024
At this year's 16th edition of the Figura Theater Festival, more than 30 first-class productions from 17 countries will conquer the stages and streets of Baden and Wettingen over six days.

The festival opens with the production "Du Bout des Doigts" by the Belgian group Madebyhands: in a sensual choreography, a couple - or rather, their hands - dance through detailed backdrops. On fingertips, they swing through different eras of humanity. The fingertip dance is filmed and restaged live on the big screen.

As part of the festival, the Government Council of the Canton of Aargau awards the coveted "Grünschnabel" prize for young puppet theater for the 11th time. All five nominated productions can be seen during the festival.

The festival offers not only a wide variety of productions, but also a wide variety of venues. Plays are performed on theater stages of various sizes, but also in tents and caravans as well as on streets and squares.

Every two years since 1994, the international theater festival of animated forms FIGURA has presented top-class productions from Switzerland and abroad, including numerous Swiss premieres. Poetic, funny, whimsical and sophisticated productions for adults, young people and children can be seen. FIGURA has held the "Kultur inklusiv" label since 2018.
