We are flying !

Moving our shadows in the sky ! Getting higher and higher !

Last projection device invented by Olivier Vallet and la Compagnie des Rémouleurs, this eight-meters wingspan bird-marionette is held by he- lium balloons. Real aerial screen, it glides over the public and collects pictures cast by the shadow puppeteers from the ground.

No words, only music, light and air. We perform either with recorded music or live musicians. The Bird can fly in the streets of a city, in gardens, fields, open-air theaters, open quarries, beaches... But it also flies indoor, in industrial wastelands, opera houses, covered markets, big temples, big tops...

Following the place of representation and the event theme, the picture data bank and the choreography are made to measure
