Union Internationale de la Marionnette

Non-Governmental Organization affiliated to UNESCO


From 27 to 29 December 2016, the first edition of the puppet festival “Douma Tanja: des arts de marionnettes et de performances” is held in Tangiers, Morocco.

This festival, which includes shows, exhibitions and moments of training, is strongly wished and directed by Professor Rachid Amahjour, president of the association ”Tanger, Porte de l’Afrique”.

It’s a first in Morocco and, in the same time, an incredible challenge and an issue, since we know that puppetry is not very developped in this country.

The festival got the patronage of the UNIMA Commission MOAN and from the local Moroccan authorities.
