Théâtre de l’Entrouvert (France)
Show for adults and teenagers, 12 years +
Presented in collaboration with Théâtre Aux Écuries
Inspired by Oedipus on the Road by Henry Bauchau, this wonderful visual poem invites the audience to experience the inner metamorphosis of a mythical being, portrayed through the transformations of water. Oedipus appears in the form of an ice puppet that gradually turns into water, then into mist. His daughter, Antigone, watches as her father disappears.
The show will be presented in French.
RUNNING TIME: 50 minutes
TECHNIQUE: Long String Marionette Made of Ice
Théâtre de l’Entrouvert was founded in 2009 by Elise Vigneron, who has a background in art and circus performance, and was trained in puppet theatre in Charleville-Mézières.
Théâtre de l’Entrouvert is at the crossroads of these three disciplines, taking a contemporary approach to puppetry, while drawing inspiration from the past. Its artistic approach is to speak directly to the senses and the unconscious, and to immerse the audience in an intimate experience.
