"Même pas morte" : Mabel octobre company

Interactive play and puppet
Cube Focus “Regards d’Enfance” / Free access / All audiences

Sunday 07 November 10
Fee: Free access

“Même Pas Morte” (not even dead) is a show mixing the performing arts and digital technology (video, computer-assisted 2D animation, 3D animation, special effects, programming, video games). It features a virtual puppet called Vesna, a 3D animated character, projected as a video and manipulated live. This character converses with the audience and with real actors against a virtual background.

Vesna is a refugee child from a country at war who lives with a foster family in a Western country. During the war, Vesna has developed habits that are difficult to shake off: she disappears in her dreams. In their big flat, her foster parents try to teach her to live a normal life again and to forget about war…

At the same time, from 3pm to 5pm: children’s workshop followed by snacks and drinks, free for all.

Saturday 6 November 2pm-5pm
Adults (all levels) / 8 Euros or free with the Cube Pass

Under the supervision of stage director Judith Depaule and her technical coordinator Thomas Pachoud, this workshop allows you to become actors or stage managers. Manipulate in real time the virtual puppet that plays Vesna and interact with the background.
