Pierre et le loup

Pierre est un garçon hardi qui n'a pas peur des loups. La porte du jardin est ouverte. Pierre en profite pour se promener dans la prairie et retrouver ses amis: l'Oiseau, le Canard et le Chat. Le Grand Père voyant cela se fâche et ramène Pierre dans le jardin.
C'est alors qu'un grand Loup gris sortit de la forêt.
Cette histoire est un adaptation par le Théâtre des Ombres du conte musical de Prokofiev
Durée : 15 minutes

Les trois petits cochons courent toujours

Ras-le-bol du grand méchant loup ! Les trois petits cochons sortent de leur conte traditionnel pour nous rejoindre. Mais hélas ! Notre monde est lui aussi plein de loups, alors l’histoire tragi-comique se répètera t’elle ? Histoire sans parole, accompagnement au piano. Durée : 20 minutes

Morceaux de piano

Spectacle comique en un seul tableau

Morceaux de piano présente un pianiste très stylé qui voudrait bien solliciter les applaudissements des spectateurs. Faut dire qu’il veut s’attaquer aux danses symphoniques de Rachmaninov. C’est pas rien et c’est même fait pour être joué à quatre mains ! Mais pour le plaisir de tous, les choses ne vont pas se dérouler comme au concert.

Durée : 10 minutes.

Réalisation des spectacles et mise en ombre :

Christophe BASTIEN-THIRY et  Marc ROSSI

Manipulateurs et conteurs:


Accompagnement musical

Sophie GEFFROY (au piano)

The 2007 International Puppet Festival in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, Asia

About the festival :
The festival is moving on to its 3rd year and has become one of the most renowned festivals in Taiwan, the beautiful island that creates its unique puppet arts. Last year in 2006, it was held during Chinese New Year holidays and attracted more than 300 thousand audience with 17 days. Therefore, next year, the government decides to expand the scale of the festival and extend the fest to 24-26 days. Also the festival is going to open greater opportunities to international theatre groups or puppeteers to participate in this event. Huge and integrated publicity will also be executed to promote this festival as well as invited artists. Therefore, it is definitely a great chance for all theatre practitioners to introduce their arts to Taiwan and Asia.

About the festival site:
The festival will be held at a formerly military base that is called Wei-wu-ying, which is known for its location of where the new national theatre and national concert hall are going to be built. The area is in total 67 hectors, having more than 200 abandoned barracks. It was very important in Taiwanese military history. Apart from being the national theatre location, it’s ethological environment will also be preserved and developed into the biggest metropolitan park of the city. In this festival, 13 hectors of the base will be used, including 8 barracks and outdoor space. We plan to use one barrack as indoor theatre and build another outdoor stage to host all international and domestic performances.

A grand-scale puppet theater festival will be held in Kaohsiung County next month, a county official said on Wednesday.
From February 10 to March 4, the 2007 Global Puppet Theater Festival will be held at Weiwu Camp , the county's director of the Cultural Affairs Bureau Wu Hsu-feng said.
"Different countries developed different forms of puppet performance," Kaohsiung County Magistrate Yang Chiu-hsing said at a news conference in Taipei. "Through international exchange, I hope new ideas will be brought into old traditions."
Ten puppet theater companies from seven countries, including the US, Ireland, Italy, France, Brazil, India and Indonesia, have been invited to perform at the festival, in addition to local groups, organizers said.
"There will also be around 200 puppets from countries like Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia from our museum on display," said Robin Ruizendaal, director of a puppet theater museum in Taipei. "Some are over 100 years old."
Visitors will be able to operate some of the puppets, he added.
"We will move the whole studio there, so everyone can see how TV puppet shows are filmed" said Huang Feng-yi  the daughter of Huang Chun-hsiung, who is the leader of a well-known traditional Taiwanese puppet theater company.
Aside from the traditional puppet performances, modern artifacts will also be on display.
These will include Star Wars figures, Barbie dolls from the US, the UK, Australia, Japan and India, as well as dolls based on other cartoon characters, the organizer said.
"It will be a great family outing destination during the Lunar New Year holidays," Yang said.
