As a comprehensive centre, TOPIC has also become a meeting point for puppeteers from all over the world. A place to learn, perform, do research, produce, and share experiences, information, reflections and to work in a, comfortable, functional, well-equipped, avant-garde environment.
TOPIC is available to everyone who shares the prospects of developing, promoting and perfecting the art of puppetry, from traditional to avant-garde; a place open for interaction with other fields of art.
As active members of UNIMA (the International Association of Puppetry), we seek to collaborate with its committees and sections, both national and international.
Children are TOPIC’s main focus. We aim to study in depth all the aspects that relate to children theatre. The objective is to bring young people into contact with the theatre of puppetry in a natural, albeit supervised way.
Tolosa has become the epicentre of puppet theatre, an artistic expression that receives increasing recognition and support. A fact that TOPIC sets out to maintain and boost this tendency.
In its 3600 m2, TOPIC integrates:
A museum for its permanent collection and temporary expositions.
A data centre, an archive and a media centre, entirely digitalized.
A modern and well-equipped 250 seat theatre.
A production/ staging / rehearsal room.
Spaces for similar stage activities.
Rooms for workshops, in-class courses and video conference courses.
A small residence for artists and researchers.
