Under the stars of the circus tent Place d’Arches, Charleville-Mézieres place 2

The whole program is here :


  • Bluebeard


A young maiden walks towards her destiny : Bluebeard’s castle, in her missing sisters’ the footsteps. What secret keeps this giant so wealthy and so blue ? What is going on in this castle, and what is there hiding behind the little bedroom door downstairs? The answer is terrible : “I forbid you to enter it, otherwise…I’ll no longer be answerable for anything.”

The Woman in Blue tells the Bluebeard story, using the architecture of her own body, puppets and a few objects. This performance reinterprets the well-known French version of Perrault’s tale. In choosing to move away from the crime story, it suggests another point of view, opens new doors and offers another way out, in a celebration of love and of the feminine.

This Bluebeard is freely adapted from Bruno De La Salle’s version (Le Conteur amoureux, Casterman, 1995) and translated into english by Lara Delage-Toriel.

The Compagnie

Who we are

The Compagnie du Coin qui Tourne is based in Strasbourg (North-East of France). Founded in 2000, the company started working around puppets and video, making non-verbal performances and using essentially articulated puppets manipulated on a table.

Until 2009, the company experimented in various fields. The new creations involve the body more in its theatricality and explore the relationship between the puppeteer and his puppet. The performances now involve text as well. When traveling abroad, they can be performed in English or German.

More than ever La Compagnie du Coin qui Tourne is attached to sharing something sensitive and poetic as a means of questioning the world we live in.
