With their passion for images and music and their fascination with the power of beauty, Frédéric Brunet, Marianne Marceau, and Maxime Robin have sought, since the start of their respective careers, to create accessible, entertaining, and moving works that help us to understand the human condition. They believe that theatre functions like a magnifying glass hanging over the world and the individual; that it allows us to observe things in detail and reveals all that is most tender, most disconcerting, most significant. Seeing a performance is a time to contemplate, to understand, and to embrace the world in every one of its delicate and vertiginous aspects. Whether as performers, stage directors or audience members, they have always commended the deeply poetic and uncompromising artistry of Théâtre des Confettis’ works. It is with a great deal of humility that, since 2022, they have stepped into the shoes left by Judith and Hélène. They hope to continue to make Théâtre des Confettis a home for artistic exchanges, where intuition and pleasure play central roles, and where the focus is always on children and their audacity, honesty, and curiosity.
