The Company

AMAC Theater presents four puppet shows for children from 3 to 12 years. This shows are faithful to famous fairy tales. The authors are Charles Perrault, the Grimm brothers and Hans Christian Andersen. The puppets's heads are made for most of them in polyester resin (of making), and the tallest characteres are between 0.50m and 1.60m. The handling of the tallest inspires from Japanese Bunraku (from 1 to 3 handling technicians for one charactere according to the scenes). The others are baubles, glove or rod puppets. Two puppeteers, Alain Bertheau and Jean-Jacques Fialon handle the puppets and play the shows.

A propos de ces spectacles

The production, devised with a foreground and an elevated background, permits to tell the story without interludes and the live performance of the texts adds a complicity with the audience. Since the end of 1999 the both the sound (music and sound effects) and all the lighting (low power) has been digitised and is computer controled. This leaves the puppeteers free to devote themselves entirely to the manipulation of the characters.

A little magic world which opens the dreams to the young and to the adults. These two plays are created for children between 3 and 12 years and are frequently performed in the theaters in the Parisian area.
