Zapik Theatre was established in 1997 by two puppeteers: playwright and director Jelena Sitar and ethnomusicologist, curator, and illustrator Igor Cvetko. In 2002 they were awarded the Tibor Sekelj Prize for their message of humanity at the PIF International Puppet Theatre Festival in Zagreb. The aesthetics of their performances are based on minimalism, warmth, experience, intimacy, and directness. Their small-scale performances for up to 50 spectators encompass puppets and music in play, education, and therapy, with spectators not only observing but also actively collaborating. In addition to organising workshops (many organised at the House of Children and Art together with Fru Fru Puppet Theatre), Zapik also organises festivals and seminars and publishes books and periodicals.
