The Artists

Anne Lapierre : Beside being co-designer of Boîtes de la paix, she is an actress, puppeteer and visual artist. On the big screen, we saw her in Les signes vitaux (Sophie Deraspe), L’heure bleue (Sara Bourdeau), RESSAC (Pascale Ferland) and What remains (Jérémy Comte). She toured many years with Le Théâtre de l’œil and in 2016, she created her one-woman-show, PENSE-BÊTE (BEASTS), where she married her skills in acting, puppet, objects theatre, body shadows and visual arts. A poetic satire where the animal kingdom settles its scores with the human beast! She persues a multidisciplinary career, always seeking for the best medium to communicate her imagination in a meaningful way.
