Cinquième salle From 28 To April 29th, 2018

Crumpled paper, folded paper, twisted paper, torn paper; a never ending cycle where figures appear out of nowhere, transform, perish - and are resurrected.

The tale starts with emptiness. A bare stage. Suddenly things begin to happen. A crunching sound as paper comes to life and assumes the form of various characters. What kind of characters? Well, as when children play, they can assume any form at all.

After his success with the acclaimed Les Funambules (2014), director and choreographer Bernard Cauchard returns to Marionnetteatern. "The stage is set for a playful mixture of movement and puppetry in which every performance is unique, created in the moment by the company", says Bernard Cauchard.

Four experienced actors with backgrounds steeped in puppetry, acting, mime and circus each add their own individual and highly specialized skills to the performance.

Marionnetteatern Kulturhuset Stadsteaternhas for more than fifty years offered qualified puppet theatre for young and old. Nevertheless, the company continues to push the boundaries and surprise its audience.

"It's hard not to be enchanted", "If Ingmar Bergman had invented the "Teletubbies" it would have looked like this."


"…just as much visual art, as installation, dance and communicative non verbal theatre."


"... A wonderful lumpy paper world of soaring birds, fluttering butterflies, an army of tiny figures, and a majestic sea turtle swimming.", "…dreamy, rustling motion poetry"
