After La Traque and L'Appel Sauvage, Barrage Barrage is the third collective production by Projet D, a dynamic collective based in Mesnay in the Jura region of France and supported by GRRRANIT SN. This puppet show, performed in a mobile outdoor theatre, is based on a Japanese theatrical technique known as "bunraku".
The story is set in the depths of a man-made lake where fish spawn peacefully and herons bask. The humans go about their business: a conflict between a father and his teenager, a plumbing leak in a guest house, a social struggle in a village...
All in all, it's a slow-paced life.
But what if everything suddenly changed?
In partnership with the GRRRANIT Scène Nationale de Belfort.
