A dazzling, inspiring experience woven by mannequins and humans
A repertory performance created by the virtuoso Gisèle Vienne in 2020

Gisèle Vienne is an artist who embodies the very cutting edge of the performing arts in France. Conjuring beautiful yet dangerous worlds with the puppets she makes herself, she here recreated her major work, “Showroomdummies,” which she first staged in collaboration with Etienne Bideau-Rey early on in her career, as part of the ROHM Theatre Kyoto’s repertory. This work that premiered in February 2020 in ROHM Theatre Kyoto is invited to Festival d'Automne à Paris.

Repertory Premiere

ROHM Theatre Kyoto launched this program in 2017 to create new theatre productions that can serve as part of a repertoire that will be staged long into the future. Through the process of creating new productions, it also organizes related programs for audience development and training actors, dramaturges, producers, and other specialists. In this way, the program aspires to build a new theatre culture in each community and region.
