Marion Fayolle

On her paper theatre

Back to summary

Passionate about theatre and dance, but believing herself to have little talent for these practices, Marion Fayolle has bypassed the limits of the stage by imagining a theatre on paper, where her characters move and dance. Fayolle explains how she treats human figures as archetypes in disguise, tracing and then re-using them as interchangeable actors from one stage and one book to another. Her stories develop as a form of sequence from one drawing which suggests another, showing far greater potential for interaction and transformation than that of actual individuals on stage.
