Carmen - La Compagnie Karyatides (B)

Based on the famous novel by Prosper Mérimée and the opera by Georges Bizet, the tragic love-story of Carmen will be staged with objects in a expressive miniature universe. Carmen tells the story of a gypsy and a soldier, the story of a legendary passion, of an all consuming love.

The protagonists are love, fate and death. A myth that, in this play, objects and marionettes breath life into: Carmen is represented by a small Spanish folklore-puppet, Don José is a small, articulated military puppet. The officer is a soldier’s jacket without a head and with rifles for legs. Love is a flower of bright-red fabric. A theatre of images.
