Puppet shows

Company Pelele is deeply inspired by popular theatre



Using exquisite designs and unbridled energy, our shows transport the spectator into a magical and absurdist world where the puppets are the principal players.
Our aim is to achieve precise manipulation of the puppets, a well-maintained pace and comic tension which is full of surprises and absorbs the attention of the public until the very end.
The music, sound effects and voices are achieved live to augment the unique and exhilarating experience of the shows. We create puppet theatre as encounter, ritual, and catharsis.
