The association > Overview

Born in 1998, Les Grandes Personnes association has practiced collective creation and the manipulation of giant puppets under every horizon, in Burkina since the year 2000 and in Chili as of 2008. Its residencies have led to the creation of many street performance companies all over the world. Driven by the desire to bring visual arts to public spaces, but also to develop narratives and theatrical events, the collective has multiplied collaborations with actors, musicians, choreographers and writers around performances that mainly take place outside, on diverse scales, from the tiny santon figurines of The Yellow Line, to the statuettes of the Ancestors and the huge characters of The Giants’ Feast, exploring new interactions between performance and audience, of which collaborative workshops are one of the methods.
