Designed by Emmanuelle Calvé, EMMAC marine Earth connects contemporary dance and puppetry and acting. During her research for this show full of theatricality, the choreographer found inspiration in the Inuit tale The Skeleton Woman, from the book Women Who Run with Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes. 

EMMAC marine Earth tells the story of a young girl diving in the ocean following the death of her father and returning to the surface after several years with a fisherman. It is through the magical images that the story is developed, raising the issue of the natural cycles of life and death. In a clean, Nordic atmosphere EMMAC marine Earth showcases the unusual relationship between body movement and the puppet-dance-theater. Both dancers and puppeteers, performers take the forms and embody different characters, ranging from the human to the animal, to fantastic creatures. 

For a public adult and adolescents (from 12 years).
