LES MAINS DE LUMIÈRE, ANTHOLOGIE DES ÉCRITS SUR L’ART DE LA MARIONNETTE
[HANDS OF LIGHT, AN ANTHOLOGY OF WRITINGS ON PUPPETRY ARTS]
For a long time shunned by major stages, puppetry has now carved out a place for itself in the field of entertainment. From animation films, to video or digital media; from acting performances to dance or the circus, the human representation is split into two, with live bodies on one side and animated figures on the other. Meanwhile an ever-greater number of puppet theatre companies challenge, invent or question the bases of their art to explore new hybrid forms and techniques.

[THE FILM LIFE OF PUPPETS]
From the first Pathé films to digital streaming services, puppetry has often times disappeared, only to suddenly reappear alongside the greats, from Chaplin to Roberto Benigni, from Renoir and Bergman to Spielberg, Kitano and Tim Burton.
