“It’s sheer madness, clever, brilliant!”
Catherine Makereel, Le Soir
“This show is dense, rich in discoveries, with never a dull moment. The madness, while contained in the beginning, builds to a crescendo and reaches a literally explosive finale. A must.”
A. Deb. L’Avenir
A puppet slowly comes to life...by itself?
The mystery of puppet creation unfolds as mishap after mishap befalls the construction process. Not to be undone, the puppet decides to complete the project itself, struggling with the elements, its materials and even its own puppeteer! The award-winning Tof Theatre presents an experience that captivates and enlightens you on traditional puppetry techniques.
Add to your experience and take a stab at making styrofoam puppets of your own at the Chantier Frigolite (workshop). No guarantees that your puppet won't come to life and take over the task!
About Tof Théâtre More details Less details
The award-winning Tof Théâtre, headed by master puppeteer Alain Moreau, was established in 1986 and celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. Tof Theatre puppets can measure anywhere from 5 centimetres to 5 metres in height, sometimes designed for exclusively for adults, sometimes only for children and often for both. An adept of “miniature realism,” the Tof deconstructs the traditional techniques for manipulating puppets and lets the audience see how the puppeteer manipulates the puppet.
