Christian Boltanski – Theatre D’ombres

-3469 (1)-3467

Theatre d’ombre (shadow theater) is a collection of metal figures roughly cut with scissors to replicate puppets dancing in the night. Christians intentions was for his viewers to recognize something with in their terrors as a child. This work has been compared to the Macabre dance which represents joyful work which stops the moment the night wins and it’s time to conjure our fears. I studied Camille Saint-Saëns – Danse Macabre which i was studying music, while listening to the piece we can clearly make a relation with Theatre D’ombres.
