les anges au plafond
Trained in puppetry in Glasgow national school, she met, as she returned back to France, great theatre directors such as Wajdi Mouawad, François Cervantès, Catherine Germain and Laurent Fréchuret. She also followed the training of the International Institute of Puppet in Charleville-Mézières especially with the English company Green Ginger. Her master for lights and shadows is the Italian puppeteer Fabrizio Montechi.
As a builder and tinkerer of unusual articulated objects as well as a performing puppeteer and actress, Camille Trouvé continued her explorations, charting an original, offbeat visual world over the course of her various productions. She performs as a puppeteer in Le Cri Quotidien, Une Antigone de papier, Les Mains de Camille and Du Rêve que fut ma vie and directed Les Nuits polaires, Au Fil d’Œdipe, R.A.G.E. and White Dog.
A circus performer by trade, he started out as a tightrope walker and juggler in the company Le Colimaçon and went on to produce five different shows mixing circus arts and comedy. In 1994 he met the Strasbourg-based company Flash Marionnettes, with whom he put together five shows, including La Tempête (1994), Léonard de Vinci (1998), Les Pantagruéliques (2002) and Un Roman de Renart (2005).
His puppeteering technique, in particular the dexterity and virtuosity with which he switches from one puppet to another, draws considerably on his well-honed juggling skills. On stage in Les Nuits Polaires, Au Fil d’Oedipe, R.A.G.E. and White Dog, he lends his voice to over a dozen different characters. He has staged Le Cri quotidien, Une Antigone de papier, Les Mains de Camille and Du rêve que fut ma vie.
