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…
