The Company

The Company of the Théâtre de l’Entrouvert was created in 2009 by Elise Vigneron who has a background in art, circus performance and puppet theatre (with a degree from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de la Marionnette in Charleville-Mézières).
At the crossroads of all these disciplines, the Théâtre de l’Entrouvert focuses on a contemporary approach to the art of puppet theatre, all the while drawing inspiration from the past.
Developing an artistic language which speaks directly to the senses, to the unconscious, plunging the audience into an intimate and common experience is all part of the artistic goal she has set herself.
The presence of ephemeral material, the phenomenon of duplication, the volatile character of images, sound vibrations and written words affect the audience’s perception, convoking landscapes more than facts, silence more than explanations.

« Whom do we speak to when we keep quiet ?» Tarjei Vesaas.

In equilibrium, together with the audience/travellers, one walks towards that territory of interface, the frontier between the visible and non-visible, the animate and inanimate, the shadows and light. We approach the place where identities fade, time is suspended, spaces flow to infinity.

The compagny Théâtre de l’Entrouvert receives support for creation from the town Apt, the Conseil général of Vaucluse, the DRAC and the région Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur and the SPEDIDAM .
The company is associated to the Espace Jéliote in Oloron Sainte Marie / a subsidised puppet theatre in Piémont-Oloronais (France).
Elise Vigneron is an « artiste accompagnée », which means she is accompanied by Les Théâtres (Aix and Marseille theaters directed by Dominique Bluzet).
