The Company

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.
