CCI is delighted to host two shows presented by our neighbours, the theatre of puppetry Le Mouffetard, as part of the festival Scènes ouvertes à l’insolite which takes place from 7 to 15 October 2016. This year’s festival is organised around itineraries through the 5th, 6th and 20th arrondissements of Paris allowing audiences to see two or three shows at a time by contemporary puppeteers.
“Confession d’une femme hachée” is the story of a butcher’s daughter who returns home just before the old family butcher’s shop is closed down. With cutting humour, she relives memories from the past as a girl living in the shadow of men and their world. Things forbidden or left unsaid, secrets and desires… intimate and universal themes buried in the flesh, waiting to emerge through the poetic force of puppetry.
