PACOTILLE / original play by Aude Marchal
11:00 am – 15:00 pm
Play for young people
A bundle on his shoulder, a suitcase in his hand, this is how the vagabond presents himself in all his simplicity. He is living his everyday life, as usual. But one morning this simple life changes when he stumbles upon a little strange box which proves to offer to him everything that he desires. After the first opening of the box nothing is usual anymore. A new world is opening up and the vagabond finds himself thrown into the middle of characters made out of old newspaper. They are five and they bond with the little man, out of friendship, interest, amusement or in other ways. Pacotille is a visual, musical and poetic play where meetings, chases, misunderstandings, sleights of hand succeed each other in an unbridled rhythm.
Pacotille is a play with handheld human size puppets made from old newspaper. Their characters are developing while meeting the actress on stage. These confrontations give the show a certain rhythm and bring to mind the world of cartoons. The idea of the play was to use simple materials (old newspaper and second hand clothes) and to create something that isn’t fixed, which allows everyone to have their own image and to lose themselves in their own dreams.
