About the Show

In puppetry performances, where does the puppeteer end and the puppet begin?

In Je M'évanouis, the puppeteer does not only control the puppet, she becomes an integral part of the puppet itself. Her hands breathe life into his limbs, while her legs form his feet. Their performance speaks of the fragility of human existence, telling the tale of one man’s life and the situations he got into.

With a human-sized puppet created by artist Martynas Lukošius, the show is driven entirely by movement and non-verbal acting. Performer Agnė Muralytė looks for a relationship with the puppet both as a puppeteer and as a character, allowing herself to appear and disappear behind the puppet.

A simple story that is poetic, sensitive yet comic, Je M'évanouis is where puppet and puppeteer literally become one. 

*Audiences do not require registration or tickets to view this outdoor performance.
