The 6th edition of the international festival JEM (Journées Européennes de la Marionnette) will take place from the first weekend of May 7 and 8 to the first weekend of June on Whit Monday, June 6, 2022. Many "firsts" in the art of puppetry in Belgium, with international and Belgian confirmed artists, masters of different techniques for a family audience, traditions and shows coming from all over Europe, to create a place of joy, encounters and dialogues for all lovers, curious and passionate about puppet cultures.
All the shows are from 4-5 years old, unless otherwise indicated. Some of them are performed in other languages than French, but they are accessible through the puppets' play and the proposed story.
