Bon voyage !

Bon voyage ! is a creation for young audiences with the central theme of grief. The narrative framework of this puppet show is mainly composed from intimate citizen testimonies. In May 2022, the Bon Voyage ! team will travel to Moncton, New Brunswick to meet with teenage groups. Through discussions about grief and shadow theater exercises, the Bon Voyage ! team will use the teenagers' vision of the characters in the show as the visual signature of the puppets under construction.
