In her visual adaptation of the famous myth of Dracula, Yngvild Aspeli chooses to freely draw inspiration from the story of Bram Stoker to focus more particularly on women. The show thus focuses on the experience of the character of Lucy - and her fight against her inner demon embodied by Dracula, who then represents domination, dependence, addiction to a destructive force. A metaphor of control, both forced and desired, seductive and deceptive. The audience embarks on an intimate and psychic journey, in this phantasmagorical universe that Lucy has built for herself, in which she has plunged and against which she fights.

Artistic director of Plexus Polaire, Yngvild Aspeli, develops a visual world that brings to life our most buried feelings, having life-sized puppets is at the center of her work. She studied at Ecole Jacques Lecoq in Paris and at ESNAM (Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts de la Marionnette) in Charleville-Mézières.

“Yngvild Aspeli is showing her ability to master different scales (…) her talent for leading puppetry in complex and exciting directions.” 

Anaïs Heluin 

 

“Visuellement, le spectacle est magnifique (…) fluide et séduisante où, dans de brefs instants, on peut douter de qui est vivant et qui est une marionnette". 

Ragnhild Tronstad

 

“Dracula is a dense (...) hour of great visual theater with excellent puppetry.”
