Our mobile Vancouver Puppet Theatre (VPT) was founded by Viktor Barkar in 2012. The notion for a permanentCanadian puppet theatre was developed since 1998 when Viktor and his family moved to Canada from Minsk, Belarus.
Viktor has a background in 3-dimentional drawing and sculpture and came to the theatre through study of classical forms of visual art.
He also dedicated multiple years to the study of various forms of graphic arts. This included photography, bindery, and computer graphics.
