Franco-German creation

creation April 2023

All ages

This project is an invitation made to Elise Vigneron and Julika Mayer on behalf of Frank Bernhardt, director and director of the puppet theater of Magdeburg (Germany) to create a show with his ensemble, a permanent troupe made up of ten actors – puppeteers.

If the thematic and the form will be constructed during the first moments of meetings with the puppeteers of the Ensemble, Elise and Julika wish, by relying on the novel by Hélène Giannecchini, “See with his own eyes”, the and questioning themselves about their practice as a puppeteer to address a more universal and collective question which is “how to live with our dead?”
