Teatr Klinika Lalek (Poland)
Teatr Klinika Lalek was founded in 1988 at the Puppetry Department of Wrocław Theatre School. While the artists were still students they produced four performances, including two open-air spectacles. At that time they created their manifesto called Med-Art, that was followed up with happenings and expressed a desire to cure the art. In 1991 the company moved to Wolimierz, a small village in Pogórze Izerskie. Since then the company has been a village wandering puppet theatre. As the company moved, the core of the theatre was created — the same people who lead the group today: Joanna Jemiołka Wiktorczyk and Krzysztof Wiktor Wiktorczyk. In 1991 the members of the theatre founded the Foundation to Support Alternative and Ecological Cultures, whose main aim is endorsing ecological activities, promoting art, as well as initiating and coordinating ecological actions in the village of Wolimierz. Besides, the Foundation supports Teatr Klinika Lalek.
