Laurie meets the ghosts of Bengal

Laurie meets the ghosts of Bengal

Laurie Canac, a puppeteer, has embarked on a research-based theatre endeavor centered on the spirits of Bengal. She will journey through various villages, delving into the local beliefs and investigating the presence of ghosts.

Utilizing her discoveries, she will craft a performance, with the assistance of Sumi, a teenage puppeteer from Thakurgaon, who will be joining her as an assistant in this project.

Laurie Cannac

Laurie Cannac is a solo puppeteer, who acquired her basic training at the Théâtre-Ecole du Passage of Niels Arestrup and Alexandre del Perugia, and completed it, on the advice of the latter, by going to learn her trade as a puppeteer in the street, in direct contact with the public.

In 1997, she founded the  Graine de Vie  company to offer a very physical puppet theater, full of energy, emotions and surprises, which continually questions the puppet and its relationship with the actor-manipulator to mix them in a poetic universe.
