Each year, the State of Kentucky hosts the biggest global convention of ventriloquists in the world. A research for The Ventriloquists Convention has led the artists to look at ventriloquists-cum-puppeteers, focusing on real-life material primarily related to the Kentucky event, as well as fictional sources. The play specifically deals with the reasons why ventriloquists do what they do, what originally led them to take up ventriloquism, the way their work is viewed by others, as well as questions concerning their gender and/or identity, and many other aspects of these curious characters.
The Ventriloquists Convention is a highly realistic fictional work, an imagined reconstruction of the real-life, Kentucky-based annual event. Nine puppeteers-cum-ventriloquists will perform a play based on the individual phases of the Convention, and take a look at the various challenges, both private and professional, they face in their work and in their performance of their act.

Approximate running time:
120 minutes, no intermission.

In English with Czech surtitles.
