«Le Grand Méchant Renard» The Big Bad Fox
THEATRE AND PUPPET SHOW FROM BENJAMIN RENNER’ S BEST SELLER
© ÉDITIONS DELCOURT – 2015
Duration: 40 minutes
Language: completely in French without subtitle
Facing up farm animals who don’t take him seriously, a shy and puny fox is tries to regain his place at the top of the food chain, with little success...
The wolf, who impresses him as much as intimidating him, is suggesting that stealing eggs might be easier than stealing chickens. Therefore, the fox steals the eggs, broods them...and becomes their mother...
Step by step, we follow the impossible quest of a fox who desperately tries, with all his innocence and goodness of the heart, to be the bad guy of the story.
«I was enticed by the expressivity of each character which bring up laughs and emotions, and the finesse of the funny situations which express quite simply the complex question of identity. I wanted to challenge myself to adapt «The Big Bad Fox» from Benjamin Renner’s comic book on stage. 8 puppets sculpted in foam evolve within a scenery directly taken from the comic-book. This “off-road” show is the result of a workshop and stage collaboration with Quebec puppeteer Isabelle Chrétien.
