Performances/Activations: A Taste for Clay

Dinaïg Stall, A Taste For Clay, 2022

Artist in Residency from May 30 to June 20

Each of these public openings will be different and it is possible to register for both HERE.

Loosely based on Emma Donoghue’s short story What Remains, and on the lives and work of sculptors Florence Wyle and Frances Loring, A Taste for Clay is dedicated to the exploration of puppet spectrality, and its ability to conjure up absentees who, while alive, were robbed of parts of their dissident existences.

Dinaïg Stall, A Taste For Clay, 2022

Dinaïg Stall is a director and puppeteer and teaches puppetry at the École supérieure de théâtre (UQAM) where she directs the DESS in contemporary puppetry. Following her studies at the National Superior School of Puppetry Arts, she founded the company Le bruit du frigo (France), of which she was artistic director for 11 years, while continuing to work with other artists. Since arriving in Quebec in 2014, she has collaborated with several creators and conducted creative research projects with musicologist Catrina Flint (College Vanier) and professor Mark Sussman (Concordia University). She is a member of the research group PRint – Interartistic Practices and Contemporary Scenes, and of various feminist groups and institutions. Her research-creation aims to explore the aesthetic and dramaturgical specificities of contemporary puppetry as a singular language, while working towards its encounter with other art forms.
