Nils, le merveilleux voyage

Pied de Biche’s adaptation of Selma Lagerlöf’s best selling story is rich in imagery, music and incredible puppetry (designed and made beautifully by Nick Barnes). The set inspired by Swedish landscapes and architecture was intended to enhance the presence of the puppets and performers. We wanted all elements to visually pop out of a neutral background. This lead to the invention of diverse mechanical elements which were integrated into the floor and popped up when needed to locate a scene.
