LET THE LITTER TALK / Creation 1997 – All audiences – duration 1h

scotchconfpetitspapiersBy and with Christian Carrignon

I propose to wander around your city, map in hand, gleaning your litter as I go, and to interpret it, joining up the dots (there is always a personal element in the making of the bigger picture). Come evening, I’ll hand your city back to you, just as you chose to give it to me.

Christian Carrignon

An ogress leans over an aquarium and looks on with appetite as the great aquatic myths unfold.

Fifty litres of water, and for the spectator, an ocean of fabulous stories: a deep-sea diver risking his life, naval and undersea battles, a giant squid, sirens both terrifying and spellbinding, not forgetting the shark whose teeth thirst for blood…

Micro-objects – a little mechanical submarine, a celluloid bather, a happy-go-lucky Barbie doll and fluorescent fish – take to the water to thrill us. Yet above the aquarium – on a screen on which our fears are projected – appears the real threat: a prima donna vampirella.


THE LITTLE KITCHEN THEATRE / Creation 1979 – All audiences – duration 30′

A camping table.

Upon it, thousands of people – corks – are waiting

Above, a village sleeps.

A little guided visit. To the left, a coffee grinder wants to become a café, by its side a tea caddy dreams of being a theatre, on high, a cake tin morphs into a factory, to the right a syrup bottle thinks it is a castle keep…

As dawn breaks, the dustman begins his round, the bakery opens, the worksite gets under way, and when it’s time for the Puppet Theatre, the children – in the guise of wrapped candies – begin to shout. Then, it all speeds up, the characters start to mill around: a wedding, a fireworks display, jousting knights, a settling of scores between Indians and cow-boys. The radar kicks into action. A spy plane is spotted. A short range missile is launched…

This miniature world made up of everyday objects comes to life thanks to the inventions of a Gyro Gearloose of the infra-ordinary.

Does a passport suffice to say who you are or where you come from?

What is identity?

This is the tale of two young women, Louisa and Patricia, who do not know where they live. In Marseille, or over there? One’s origin is Kabyle, the other, Martinique.

To be from two places at once, how can that be told?

By way of dance, song, souvenirs of childhood and objects, Louisa and Patricia tell us of this great divide, “one foot here, one foot over there”, the real or invented roots that keep us standing tall.
