Une tribù collective

From 10 years old

Minister of Youth Award at the Young Public Theatre Meetings in Huy 2023
"Junior" Jury Prize at the Momix Festival 2024

Have you ever thought about the life of a puppet? Never making the slightest decision. Never thinking. Never choosing. A whole life delegated to others: the puppeteers.

Is it fantastic or terrible? And what can a puppet do that constantly plays the same show, a show it doesn't like? What can she do to change things?

She decides to go all out and take power and command the puppeteers in turn. She no longer wants to live vicariously and wants to decide for herself what happens to her. But for that, she will have to convince the puppeteers, who, themselves, are attached to their job. The puppet makes promises, but among the artists, no one really believes in it.

So we ask the audience, "Can we dream of another system?"
