Spiders, Masks and a Giant Moon: Visiting Théâtre du Loup in Geneva

I was very excited to visit Théâtre du Loup in Geneva in July 2015. Arguably the ‘Bread and Puppet’ of Switzerland, the dynamic community theatre company was founded in 1978 by Veronique Berthet, Eric Jeanmonod and Sandro Rossetti. A large part of the company’s history was creating puppets to parade in the streets, and in the early days they were part of a theatre collective called ‘The Red Moon’. I was thrilled to have a tour of the theatre and to see many puppets, masks and props that were used in previous shows, as well as take a look at costume designs and photos. My favourite display was the spider!
