Shedding Light on Shadows



Echoing the exhibition titled “Shadows and Light” held at the Centre Pompidou and at La Cite des Sciences et de l’Industrie, the Marionette Theater of Paris presents The Night in Which You Love Me and The Puppeteer of  Adrizie, two shows that focus on images and on shadows. The shows offer the opportunity to go behind the scenes and get a closer look at the workings of these trainers of light, whether they be lighting engineers or shadow puppeteers. These manufacturers of ephemeral visions remind us of the harmless things that are easily forgotten such as the influence that light has upon us or the existence of our shadow.
