What is object theatre? This artform, despite being unknown to the general population, is worth discovering as it can offer vast possibilities for creators. In this workshop, Alexandre Leroux and Nicolas Germain-Marchand, educators and actors at La Pire Espèce, will aid you in stepping into the universe of object theatre with a healthy helping of mischief and humour. With the help of video excerpts from the company's past productions, they will teach you various tools to create with objects. Cherry on top: the actors will also play with the boundaries of virtual space to offer a dynamic experience despite the barrier of the screen.

LE THÉÂTRE DE LA PIRE ESPÈCE
Since 1999, Le Théâtre de la Pire Espèce has borrowed its techniques from various disciplines such as puppetry, object theatre, clowning, cabaret, and street theatre. They are devoted exploring the creative process in order to develop an artform that is vibrant, innovative and accessible.
