Yngvild Aspeli

Yngvil Aspeli is a director, actress, and puppeteer of Norwegian descent. After studying at the École internationale de théâtre Jacques Lecoq,  then at the École nationale supérieure des arts de la marionnette (ESNAM) in Charleville-Mézières, she has led since 2008 the company Plexus Solaire and created Signaux (Signals), Opéra opaque (Opaque Opera), Cendres (Ashes), and Chambre noire (Darkroom). Her research revolves around the presence of the actor-puppeteer onstage, and she works with an extensive visual language in which light, music, and video come together. This is Yngvild Aspeli's first show at the Festival d'Avignon.
