About the Show

Freely based on Hans Christian Andersen’s Thumbelina, L’Illusion’s most recent production combines puppetry, dancing and music.

In order to develop an original multidisciplinary scenic writing, a team of five artists was formed. They all come from various backgrounds: dance, music, visual arts, light and puppet theatre.

This show is the result of artistic research on the representation of female characters in world literature. A puppeteer, a dancer and a musician take audiences into an organic world that changes before their very eyes. Twigs, corollas and leaves come to life and emphasize Thumbelina’s quest for freedom.
