“La poupée” - The Soul of Abuse
At the core of our society lies a dark secret - child abuse.
Through the extraordinary work of puppets and creators Artista Xanthie and Laki Apostolidis, a dark social reality is presented. The dolls, the innocent protagonists, suffer injustice and abuse at the hands of the other dolls, while Artista Xanthie holds, communicates, interacts with the small child, a symbol of lost innocence.
Through this shocking spectacle, the audience is invited to empathize with the fear, insecurity and need for protection felt by abused children.
The show highlights the need to break this cycle of abuse and protect the weak.
"La poupée" is a performance that leaves no one unmoved and constitutes a strong cultural and social stigma.
*Lakis Apostolidis is one of the first puppeteers of post-war Greece, and his dolls for the first time "wake up" and play after his death.
