La Petite Allumette
The Little Match inspired by Andersen’s tale, is an intimate optical theater experience.
A puppet is evolving in a holographic set up, interacting with moving images.
It’s a picture box, a magical space, a poetic show.
How good it is to warm up in the glow of a match !
A spectator, a point of view :
It is through a lens that we discover the show.
The set up is a one-way mirror, arranged
so that the scenery of a street can be reflected.
Depending on the lighting, the puppet appears or disappears. It gives the illusion to the spectators
that the animated characters, displayed in the screen at the background, are alongside the puppet.
