Created in 2009, Les ombres portées is a shadow theatre company composed of a collective of artists and technicians coming from a diverse range of backgrounds. For any given project, up to fifteen members come together pooling their various expertises (music, stage design, construction, drawing, lighting, writing, etc.) to create a singular production.
Revisiting the art of shadow theatre, the company produces shows for all ages. With no spoken dialogue, the shows mix dynamic images with live music. Each project is an opportunity to develop an original narrative form, a unique scenographic device and a distinct musical score in line with the piece’s subject matter.
The company also offers numerous shadow theatre workshops for all ages, as well as a variety of scenographic projects and installations.
Since September 2020, the company has been an associated artist with the theatre La Faïencerie de Creil, being part of its roster for the last three seasons.
It has also been registered with the Île-de-France DRAC since 2020.
