TOPIC. Tolosa's International Puppet Centre

TOPIC, Tolosa's International Puppet Centre, radiates magic to the core, where imagination, innovation and originality go hand in hand. This is the only centre in Europe focusing exclusively on the puppet's world. In fact, we should not forget that Tolosa has always had a very tight connection with this art, as the Titirijai Puppet Festival proves.


The ground floor plays host to the modern auditorium with a capacity of 250 spectators, and staging and rehearsal rooms, whereas the first floor has a cafeteria and a buffet restaurant to hold performances or exhibitions of intimate atmosphere. On that very floor can be found the puppet storeroom, which keeps the pieces that are not on display.


As to the second floor, the permanent and temporary exhibitions take place in here. It should also be noted that the wide TOPIC collection consists of over 2.500 puppets from 40 countries.


To finish, the archives, the documentation centre (DVDs, books, posters, photos'), artists' and researchers' headquarters and rooms for workshops are situated on the third floor, whereas the fourth holds choir rehearsals.
