In a series of living pictures, the character – all at once adult, young girl and old woman, wolf and raven – evokes beauty and solitude. Created in 2012, this visual poem has since been performed on four continents at some of the most important puppet festivals.

Magali Chouinard is a multidisciplinary artist. The female body, movement, presence and interiority lie at the heart of her poetic and visual research. Thirty years of exploration – drawing, sculpture, installation art, performance and writing – have been converging since 2008 towards the art of puppetry and its ability to bring movement to her visual landscape. Her theatre of images is both unique and striking.
