La marionnette, instrument pour la scene
Through more than 200 pieces, the exhibition explores the plurality of characters, gestures and actions that the world of puppets encompasses. It also elaborates on the way the puppet’s art has influenced the renewal of dramaturgy and staging (notably with the avant-garde) and the reinvestment and reinvention of the repertory and dramatic genres like fairy tales and satires. The exhibition also explains how puppeteers have allowed the hybridization of the scenic genres (small and large scale opera, dance, circus or cabaret shows) and the displacement of the frontiers between various artistic domains : plastic arts, installations, experimentations with matter and the likes.
