About the Artists
The Arab Puppet Theatre Foundation (APTF) was founded in 2008 as a non-profit organization with the mission to encourage puppetry practices throughout the Arab world, advance new developments in the field, and function as an established puppetry school and theatre. The initiative is a first of its kind, serving as a school and establishing a strong network of international puppeteers.
