À propos

Une Tribu Collectif is composed of two creative artists (actors and puppeteers), Michel Villée and Noémie Vincart, who collaborate with partners in the creation of their shows. 

They create puppet shows and have chosen to work collectively. This synergy means that everyone is involved in the process. It's a search for meaning in the detail. All the arts represented in a creation can be brought to the fore according to needs and ideas.

What all our creations have in common is an evocative storytelling process that places the spectator in an active position: it's thanks to the involvement of his or her imagination that the meaning of the story takes shape. Puppetry, in the broadest sense of the term, is at the heart of every creation. The puppets are built in parallel with the themes of each show. Une Tribu works very precisely on puppet manipulation, and puppet technique is used to translate the dramaturgical aspects of the work.
