Chicago Puppet Fests presents:

Les Anges au Plafond: R.A.G.E.


US Premiere

In a spectacular blending of magic, puppetry, gesture and manipulation, R.A.G.E. presents the outlandish story of a literary imposter who, to escape censorship, invents a new identity and plots one of the most beautiful deceptions of the 20th century. This politically epic and scathing story teeters on the porous border between reality and fiction. Join miles of threads, dozens of puppets, a trumpeter, a singer and a man as they weave a plot of resistance with maternal love in a desperate attempt to re-enchant the world.​

Performance with English subtitles

Special support from: FACE, Cultural Services French Embassy United States
