Every man of power prepares his table with the dishes he chooses and dictates the rules, norms and conventions of tasting. Symbolic system of power, the table will be at the center of the company's reflection: “we will invoke the figure of the bloodthirsty and lustful Ubu to see how he gets a hold of it, and how his dictatorship ibecome printed on him; we will invite artists who, between freeloaders and guests of honor, they will express their appetites or their disgust for what is being served, and show well the different ways in which to feed (vomit or die) to the udders of power”. A desecrating reinterpretation of Jarry's Ubu made with a table and a puppet, four hands and two minds.
PUPELLA-NOGUES: founded in 1984 by Joëlle Nogues and Giorgio Pupella, the company offers an inventive and curious theater, where visual and sound literary references characterize the energy of the puppet. A contemporary theater that can be proposed both for an adult or childish audience, emphasizing the poetic aspect of writing and work on the subject. An imaginative and curious Theater, in which literary, visual and sound textures catalyze the energy of the figure theater. A contemporary puppet theater that offers a poetic approach to writing and material. The company participated in the most important French festivals and toured much of Europe, including Russia and South Korea.
