9 July marks one of the highlights of this year’s festival. The auditorium of the Maribor Puppet Theatre will be the scene of a clown show that breaks down stereotypes about clowns. The show Imagine-toi (Imagine) has been touring around the world for more than a decade and will finally stop in Maribor. It is the work of Julien Cottereau, for many the successor of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton and once the leading clown of the famous Cirque du Soleil collective. Julien performs without a single spoken word and without stage elements, but this does not in the least deter him from creating worlds that address what is most beautiful, most magical and most precious in humanity – childhood.
