The MAboule festival is one of the rare events dedicated to the art of contemporary puppetry in Belgium. It is co-organized by TOF Théâtre and Le MONTY, co-financed by the city of Genappe, supported by par les Tournées Art & Vie, Wallonie-Bruxelles International and the National Lottery. As of this year, the Ministry of Culture of Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles (service de la Création Artistique – Arts Vivants) has granted additional funds for programming support.
The Festival is part of the « Genappe perd la boule » festivities organized by the City of Genappe, coordinated by the alderman of Culture, in collaboration with the TOF Théâtre, the Genappe Festival Committee and the Genappe Cultural Center.
The festival exists thanks to the help of many volunteers and the involvement of the citizens of the entity who welcome the artists to their homes.
A special thanks to Michel Boudru for the graphic design, to Max Vandervorst for the music of the radio spot and to the Théâtre de la Lorgnette for its support with the programming of one of the shows.
For their logistical support: Le 38, Carrefour culturel, L’Atelier 13 (Agathe De Rouck), the Café de la Lanterne (Maxence van Crombrugge and his team), the Atelier d’à Côté (Julie Bodenghien) and of course the technical service of the City of Genappe!
