Actor Tamer (Dompteur)

An original, evolutionary show, DOMPTEUR is a spontaneous-generation structure featuring four different actors each performance, as well as a musician and a dompteur, or tamer – the director.

Throughout the performance, the Dompteur will impose an initial situation, either aloud or discreetly, all while directing the musician and lighting technician to create the proper ambiance. Together, they’ll collaborate to build stories and sequences of events. This spontaneous-generation structure allows the actors to play unrestrained by stageplay in order to best explore the possibilities of the game and fully embody the depth of the characters they’ll invent on the spot. In this way, DOMPTEUR allows audiences to be fully immersed in the world of theatre and gives them the precious feeling of having had the chance, if just for a moment, to access the imagination of the creators.
