Strasbourg - Colmar / Created in 2021

A troubling and fascinating experience where we watch as a little human is turned into an object by adults.

In a workshop that looks a lot like an assembly line, puppets are hard at work building Pinocchios. Not, as might be expected, by carving them out of wood, but by convincing children to turn into dolls… A reversal of the story of Pinocchio, Pinocchio(live)#2 invites us into a dystopian world to experience “live” a troubling, fascinating, and upsetting show. What does a human child look like when it has been turned into an object for adults? And vice versa? Following a research project that lasted several years, puppeteer Alice Laloy has written a show at the crossroads of dance, plastic arts, and performance, with young students of the Centre choréographique of Strasbourg and the Conservatoire of Colmar. Or how to invent a new mythology of the creative gesture…


With the child dancers of the Centre chorégraphique de Strasbourg : Pierre Battaglia, Stefania Gkolapi, Martha Havlicek, Romane Lacroix, Maxime Levytskyy, Rose Maillot, Charlotte Obringer, Nilsu Ozgun, Anaïs Rey-Tregan, Edgar Ruiz Suri, Sarah Steffanus, Nayla Sayde and the students of the drama class of the Conservatoire de Colmar : Alice Amalbert, Jeanne Bouscarle, Quentin Brucker, Esther Gillet, Léon Leckler, Mathilde Louazel, Antonio Maïka, Jean-Baptiste Mazzucchelli, Louise Miran, Valentina Papic, Nina Roth, Raphaël Willems
