What’s more surprising than a plastic-bag- world, where funny and colorful creatures appear and transform? They fill up, they empty out, they fly, they get bored, they are funny—and they might resemble us a little bit. With Plastique, Théâtre Puzzle brings to the Vittum Theater a multicolored performance with unusual puppets, humor, and unexpected situations.

ABOUT THE SHOW

What’s more surprising than a plastic-bag- world, where funny and colorful creatures appear and transform? They fill up, they empty out, they fly, they get bored, they are funny—and they might resemble us a little bit.

ARTISTS

Created in Bulgaria and established in Montreal since 2004, Théatre Puzzle presents a unique style by mixing various genres, traditional and contemporary. Combining dramatic theater, object theater, and puppetry, Théatre Puzzle is distinguished by the colored amalgam of styles and the variety of means of expression it offers. Granting the audience the freedom to interpret the unspoken and the free association of ideas, allowing them to feel what is not explicitly told, this is the artistic peculiarity of the company.
