Puppet Theatre is one of the treasures of Latvian culture which it is justly proud of, taking into account that not every European country can boast of such a value. What is the history of our Puppet Theatre and who stood behind its creation? Artist Pāvils Šenhofs (1924–2011) was among the originators of the Latvian Puppet Theatre, creating its history almost throughout the whole period of its existence.
„Along with verbal honouring and official recognition Pāvils Šenhofs definitely deserves one more title – an Honorary Citizen of the Puppet World. He himself has created this world, which is sovereign, colourful, vivacious, appealing and talking to us." (Aldis Linē)
