? Azur & les A?roplanes ?, a theatre company founded by visual artist Patricia Gattepaille, has chosen to explore the infinite and extraordinary territories of the Mask.
Why the Mask ?
What the genius of mankind has invented to celebrate the gods and nature,
Mourn the dead, glorify the living, laugh, provoke awe or admiration,
Love, solemnise meetings, mock, recite poetry, cure?
All this has been done by calling on the Mask..
In theatre, the Mask is a sculpture as much as it is a character.
One does not wear a Mask thoughtlessly but with lightness and precision.
Wearing a Mask involves bringing into play one?s own humanity.
Restoring the Mask?s spectacular place at the heart of life.
Participating in the understanding of the world?s cultures through the Mask.
? Azur & les A?roplanes ? pursues these two objectives through various activities : mask making on commission, training courses for professionals, exhibitions, shows, creative workshops for all.
We will mask them all !
Just to clear things up?
