MARINA MONTEFUSCO

Puppeteer, Producer-director, founder and Artistic Director of the Company LE CLAN DES SONGES

Following on from her theatre studies at Piccolo Teatro di Milano, Marina moved to France where, in 1990, she set up her own theatre company. Supported by a faithful team, she wrote, produced and constructed shows in a language capable of reaching the spectator beyond the means of words. Her aesthetic choices veered mainly towards the creation of images, a theatre of metaphors, joining the revival of puppetry in France. Her works have travelled the globe. Amongst the better-known : 'Faux Départ', 'Colère polaire', 'Souvenir d'un pantin' (audience choice award Cannes '98), 'Cargo'... And the trilogy for young audiences : 'La Nuit s'en va le Jour', 'Fragile', 'Cité'.

"I imagine the theatre as a crossing point between reality and fantasy... To be present as the doors open, as hosts of our house of waking dreams. To share, in a close and intimate way, the breathing of the audience, feel their thrills, hear the words escaping their lips, to be captivated by their laughter and their tears."
