let's dance together while we are here !

Le Bal 2 creux_edited_edited.png

The Puppet Ball

A dance floor set up on the theatre stage, a stage transformed into a dance floor, it's the Carnival of Life. Let's dance together while we're here ! Wisely suspended, human-sized puppets are waiting for you. Puppets with long and colourful skirts, tooth castanets, mask hats and other objects. A festive and slightly gloomy universe evoking the festivities of the Dia de los Muertos. There is no longer an audience, actors, spectators or professionals here, only a crowd welcomed to the Ball to set this multitude of inanimate objects in motion. So let ourselves be transported and learn to create beauty together. We work on our suppleness, our centre of gravity, our grammar of manipulation. And at the end of the night, it will be hard to tell which of love or death leads the ball. Who from the puppet or the human dragged us into this devil's dance. Come in black, we'll give you the color!
