The Weighing of the Hearts (2017), France

Giant puppets, a collaboration with Hany Hommos

Two giant puppets, figures of mythological mediators, Anubis (funerary god of ancient Egypt) and a semi-human creature, accompany the viewers in journey between the worlds of the living and the dead.

Taking the form of a funerary rite, the performance questions the troubling ambiguity of puppets, both animate and inanimate, living and non-living.
