France, 2016 / 52 min / French OV / Documentary

18 months after the Bateau Feu theatre’s reopening in Dunkirk, the Turak theatre company is going to introduce their new play “Une cArMen en Turakie” to the world. During this time, a living puppet play is being developed – a gargantuan task for the company. In their workshops, the camera unveils the group’s story and intimately presents its members, their universe and inventions, – such as their musical machine that delights audiences across the world – and the passion everyone puts into this unique project.

The film accompanies the birth of an intricate play from beginning to end, allowing viewers to revisit the universe of the Turak company and introducing it to those who – until now – knew next to nothing about the French artist.

In partnership with Rotondes.
