Cooperation between the Estonian Puppet Theatre and the Faroe Islands will see the creation early this year of the Danish dependency's own puppet theatre, whose first production, 'The Kingdom of Babylon', will premiere in March. The founding of the Faroese theatre forms part of the Estonian theatre's initiative to establish NEENPAC – the Northern and Eastern European Network of Puppet Arts. Support for the activity was granted from the long-term cooperation module of the Nordic and Baltic Mobility Programme for Culture.

'The Kingdom of Babylon', which is based on Faroese folk tales, was written and is being produced by islander Helena Fríðheim. Its puppets and models are being created by Anni Jõeaas from the Estonian Puppet Theatre.
