About Le Théâtre de l'Entrouvert

Théâtre de l’Entrouvert was created in 2009 by Élise Vigneron. At the crossroads of various disciplines, it focuses on a contemporary approach to the art of puppet theatre that also draws inspiration from the past. The company seeks to develop an artistic language that speaks directly to the senses and the unconscious, plunging the audience into an intimate and common experience.

Anywhere is made possible through the generous support of the Jim Henson Foundation, with additional support provided by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States, Institut français (Paris), The Jane Henson Foundation, and Cheryl Henson.
