The mine collapses. A young miner is expelled from the coalmine in which he works. His only chance to keep working for the mining company is to head for the area of Chiflón de Diablo, the area known as one of the most dangerous places a miner can work in Chile. Based in part on the story El Chiflón del Diablo by Baldomero Lillo, a distinguished Chilean author, as well as research on the mining town of Lota in Chile, El Silencio del Carbón is a hauntingly beautiful, non-vocal marionette work that connects deeply with a broad family audience.
Come for the show, stay for the woe" is the motto of the morbid circus at the center of the French puppet company Stereoptik. In this sad circus the catastrophes pile up, one after the other. The trapezist crashes to the ground; the animal trainer is devoured by his lion; the human cannonball never returns from outer space. Luckily, there's a clumsy juggler to breathe a little color into the proceedings. If the circus is dark, the tone is light. Music and images accompany the action, and the story is laced with poetic moments and a healthy dose of irony. The visual magic of the theater meets the childlike wonder of the circus. For family audiences.

Ship of Fools is an interdisciplinary theater piece with live music, puppetry and movement that seeks to illuminate the age-old practice of pathologizing women's bodies and minds.

Who is actually steering the ship: citizen, celebrity, politician or madman? What happens when this ship, sailing blind, finally runs aground?
