Anna and Aelin Zachaël

 

It was in 2004 that Anna and Aelin met. With Anna, Aelin Zachaël develops the skills of a puppeteer. With Aelin, Anna takes an in-depth look at her musical talents. The duo creates numerous puppet and musical shows that transport us to a colorful universe imbued with gentleness and tenderness. They make their puppets and their decorations mainly out of wood and papier-mâché and experiment with various techniques (masks, fads, hand puppets, string puppets, etc.). Anna writes the stories, Aelin the music. They lend their voices to the characters and play musical instruments on the magnificent soundtracks that accompany their shows. The duo perform across Quebec on various stages during festivals, in libraries, community halls, cultural centers, municipal celebrations, schools and perhaps at home!
