Etienne Saglio, a master of new magic, combines the exploration of new objects and magical processes with a romantic, mysterious imagination. His new show invites us to listen to wolves to think about our relationship to nature, childhood and imagination. You can see The Sound of Wolves at the Théâtre le Grand T in Nantes from 24 to 28 September 2019 or the Théâtre du Rond-Point in Paris from 10 to 24 May 2020.
“I want to restore the forest of our imagination” - Etienne Saglio
The magician draws from Alice in Wonderland and the Grimm Brothers’ classic fairy tales to shake up the bearings of our everyday lives with a magical realism where nature reclaims its rights. Combining extraordinary performers with puppets—a mouse, a fox, a child and a giant—Saglio plays with unsettling changes in sets, turning the stage into a forest of a thousand and one enchantments during the show.
This ambitious creator uses the Foundation’s funding for research and experimentation to create his shows. Research time is precious for all artists, especially in new magic, which is in the middle of an exploration stage.
