Puppet Theatre

by Egotrip Productions (since 2006)

I directed several shadow theatres plays in collaboration with Allison Moore in the last years. I cofounded Egotrip Productions company with her, which is a member of UNIMA (Inernational Union of Puppeteers) as well as AQM (Québec Puppeteers’ Association). These performances of various durations were presented in cabaret events in Montreal such as Phénomena Festival, Nuit Blanche and Café Concret. They were also presented in in art gallery settings at Megalo artist-run center (Australia), Paved Arts (Saskatoon) and ARPRIM gallery (Montreal). I compose the soundtrack and sound effects while Allison Moore is developing the video content (animations, visual effects) which serves as a backdrop and light source for the puppets.  Through puppetry, the characters and situations we develop in drawings are brought to life in open narrative, immersive experiences. Our next production is titled Macroscopic Harmonies and will be presented at Casteliers Festival during the first week of March 2021, if the sanitary measures allow it.

Egotrip Productions created two hand puppet shows in 2006 and 2008. These were titled “Popol’s Vengeance” and “The Country That Does Not Exist” and were presented as part of Montreal Fringe Festival at Just For Laughs Cabaret and MAI (Montréal Arts Interculturels). The plays were written in French by Cus (Marc Boutin) and referred to Punch and Judy or Guignol tradition. The sets and puppets were designed and painted by Arthur Desmarteaux and Allison Moore, integrating video elements and UV lights for certain scenes.
