A Théâtre Motus and Théâtre Pupulus Mordicus coproduction in collaboration with the Marionnettissimo festival

Through puppets, actors, shadows, videos and illusions, the play looks into the figure and work of Georges Méliès. The production is neither a biography nor a tribute. It delves into Georges Méliès’ world and playfully looks into the unbelievable creative enthusiasm of this exceptional man, his rise and decline as well as his recognition in later life.

Méphisto Méliès benefited from residencies at Théâtre de la Ville (Longueuil) and l’Usine (Tournefeuille) and opened the Marionnettissimo festival at L’Escale in Tournefeuille, France on November 18, 2014.
