LES SOEURS (6+) by WIThWIT vzw
two giant puppets dangling on strings
around them a greenhouse - or is it a hospital?-
a leg moves an eye flickers
a bird flutters the sisters rise
Les Soeurs is a visual and musical family performance in which two enormous puppets -two sisters- play a leading role. In a big and sophisticated installation a wordless play arises, circling around themes like vulnerability, (in)dependency and emotions. Together with the audience the puppets discover themselves, each other and the world around them. Who really pulls the strings?
In Les Soeurs, the artists create a poetical universe between fantasy and reality. Les Soeurs is an associative and dynamic performance on the boundaries of theatre, music, dance and plastical arts.
A refreshing performance with long limbs, surprising transformations, flying blankets and crying buckets.

After a first, fragmented rehearsal period -WIThWIT finally received positive news concerning project funding by the Flemish Government. Thanks to this financial support, the artists will be able to refine the performance during a new working period (summer 2016). Besides that, an installation version of Les Soeurs will be created.
