Turak in few words
Turak, is a Theater of Objects and Puppets company, that develops a visual theater «all ground compatible»
fed by diverted objects, by old or imaginary mythologies, by languages in multiple and invented accents.
Known for its research work around the object, Turak mixes the puppet forms, the gestural theater and the
plastic exploration. This tinkered poetry could be situated in the crossroads of the dance, the gestural theater
and the plastic arts.
The artistic approach of Turak lays on a game with the used object. Imaginary past, born from «the used of
the object», memory and marks of an invented civilization, it is from this fictitious archaeology that shows and
exhibitions are created.
The shows written and staged by Michel Laubu thus address a very wide public. Every image having several
levels of reading, the doors of access are not lacking. It is a writing in strata, with « theater in all the floors».
