Gisele Vienne & Dennis Cooper: New Project

Director/puppeteer Gisele Vienne and writer Dennis Cooper have been working on theatre projects since 2004; their “Jerk,” for example, was told from the vantage point of David Brooks, the real-life accomplice to Texas serial killer Dean Corll who was responsible for the deaths of more than 25 teenage boys in the early 1970s. For their new project, “Teenage Hallucination,” at the Centre Pompidou in Paris until March 12, Vienne and Cooper brings together various objects. Thirty-nine dolls will be on show as an installation accompanied by a beautifully shot photographic documentation of Gisèle‘s work with and on them.
