Specifically created in preparation for the Lithuanian Season in France, this large-scale focus was dedicated to performing arts professionals in Lithuania, and a host of key figures from France’s performing arts scene travelled for the occasion.

French professionals from the puppetry arts sector were also invited to the Materia Magica Festival, held during the same period in Klaipeda.
