This year’s festival runs from 28th January – 5th February 2022, presenting the very best of Scottish and international puppetry, visual theatre and animated film.
MANIPULATE Festival presents the very best of Scottish and international puppetry, visual theatre and animated film to adult audiences in Edinburgh and beyond. The Festival aims to engage and challenge our audiences with high-quality visually led work which pushes boundaries, plays with form and challenges perceptions.
By bringing together the very best puppetry, visual theatre and animated film from across the globe with work which has been developed here in Scotland, we aim to spark opportunities for artistic exchange and to offer our audiences a diverse palette of rich visually led work.
The 2022 festival will take place in Edinburgh, between The Studio, Festival Theatre and Summerhall. You can find out about getting to the venues, access and facilities by visiting the Summerhall website here and the Festival Theatre website here. Please be aware that the Festival Theatre Studio is accessed via the entrance on Potterrow and not the main entrance on Nicholson Street, however tickets may need to be collected at the main box office.
