Spent the weekend at Biennale Internationale des Arts de la Marionette 2019
in Paris, France
By Adjjima Na Patalung, Festival Director of BICT Fest
My dancer Yaun arrived, and my puppet artists Pascale, doing a demonstration at the event, and Carine met us in the evening for a performance. Watching Nathan Israël, Alice Laloy and Renaud Herbin’s works in a day … I felt spoiled. An incredible day, an incredible event, an incredible venue. Alice Laloy’s “Pinocchio(s)” – edgy, provocative and shockingly beautiful. I’ve not been blown away in such a way since kabinet k’s “rauw”.
Can’t wait to go back for more BIAM 2019, but it’ll have to be after our Nang Yai Project research and development workshop taking place all next week!
The third day into the week of the research development workshop “Nang Yai Project 1/5”
A hello (when a familiar face drops by!)
