How to give life to dead material and conversely give “death” to the actor’s living body?
A study of the stage expression of the actor and the puppet theatre and the fusion of both into a new stage expression. The experiment is inspired by theatre theorist Edward Gordon Craig’s ideas about the “ideal” actor, the Übermarionette, free of strings above, free of psychology and realism; a representative of the poetry and symbolic universe of puppetry. Research also includes a study of the universe of Polish director Tandeusz Kantor, using puppets and actors on stage.
