Candide

Updated: Oct 7

Based on the novel "Candide " by Voltaire. For 2 actresses/puppeteers and junk puppets.


Concept, design, construction of puppets and scenery, text and performance: Patricia O'Donovan and Louise Blankvoort.

Created in 1988 in the framework of our studies in the School for Visual Theater in Jerusalem.


Louise and I built the puppets from junk we found in the street. The scenery was a group of 5 big water tank metal lids suspended by elastic ropes from the roof. They changed function, becoming sometimes our armor, others a castle window or a boat.



The show premiered at the very first Finale of the newly founded SVT in 1986 at the Kahn Theater in Jerusalem.
