Presentation of the Company
Founded in 2005, La Tortue Noire continues to gather the experiences of creation, research and international tour experience. The object is the heart of the artists’ creation process. The object is the source of gesture, the staff on which the moving body’s melody is written. As they are also concerned with the actor’s work, the artists are looking for new approaches to puppetry and the actor/puppeteer relationship. Their shows combine acting, puppetry, animated forms and object theatre.
The company has created nine original shows, which have been presented in Canada, Italy, Mexico, Czech Republic, Belgium and France. The creations of La Tortue Noire have received many awards, including the Gallery Chagall Award, a major distinction awarded in the Czech Republic, for the show Kiwi, »which brings puppetry to new heights ».
