CHIAROSCUROShort film / 9 minutes
Chiaroscuro… it is between the light and the dark that life operates in contrasts. Between the puppeteer and the puppet. Between shadow and light. The hands, moving or static, bring and transmit emotions. A reciprocal relationship between the puppet and those who give it life, emotions flow in both directions. It is the story of the memory that is born and that dies. But memory rarely dies, to tell the truth.

Le Théâtre Incliné has produced several short films that have had fun with our live art practice. For our latest short film Clair/Obscur, we gave carte blanche to director Élias Djemil-Matassov. He took a very tender look at our puppet practice, which is halfway between visual art and performing art.
