Backpack Puppet Company


Backpack Puppets is a young creative company that offers educational workshops to schools and community centers. They incorporate  puppets as the object and the medium of teaching.

In relation to this method, 'Au Pays des Pains Dorés: Homeland of All the Little Toasts' was our lastest endeavor, simultaneously giving a workshop in the south or west coast of Africa and in Northern Canada.  Encounter and storytelling is at the heart of this project.  Annie  Maheux and Camille Banville, the founders of Backpack Puppets, always leading this workshop in the two hemispheres at the same time, and connecting the ongoing processes of both groups.

The new 2019 project touches the elderly and their grandchildren in order to reestablish the link between two generations with very different lifestyles and ways of thinking. The projects will take place in parallel in Europe and in South America. More details to come in the following weeks.
