An eclectic programme of performances from international theatre-makers and animators featured the darkly comic productions salto.lamento by Figurentheater Tubingen from Germany and Quarto Interior, from the Portuguese company Circolando. The exhibition of mechanical Automata installed in the Traverse Theatre Café-Bar through the festival week was also greatly enjoyed by audiences. Immersive and intriguing, other highlights from 2010 included two brilliant animated feature films, $9.99 and Renaissance, as well as Explorations of Love, Death & Power Tools, a dynamic selection of short animations.
