Summer 2020 / France : Vaulx-en-Velin to Avignon by bicycle / 333 kms

Alceste is an old puppet that loves to travel and meet people. This summer, we took him on a bicycle trip from Vaulx-en-Velin to Avignon in France. The artistique idea was to show the power of puppets in a real environment.

We filmed our encounters and made a video to share with you these moments. In this work, people have agreed to exchange something that has become a part of their lives.

Enjoy the trip...

The life of Alceste is a performance of a human-size puppet produced by Company El Caracol (FR) and La Breche (BG).
