Théâtre de Liège has called on the Karyatides to reply to the Renaissance project. This company, whose performances are open to every age, is part of the partnering programme of the Théâtre de Liège.
Based on literary classics, the Karyatides develop a theatre of figures, combining puppetry, object theatre and music. They play with the commonplace, the cliché, thus provoking quirkiness from which poetry flows.
