Laos has experienced in recent years, the resurgence of some forms of traditional puppet prohibited scenic play for over 30 years, but also the emergence of new forms spectacular contemporary innovative. These two spectacular forms have been and are continuously wrought by the influence of artistic encounters between Asia and Europe (Franco-Laotian encounters in the study proposed here).
This communication aims to analyze the different axes of influence of these Europe-Asia meetings at the heart of performances and creative processes: we will examine the "power" of this new Western and European public for whom traditional puppets reborn Laos must adapt and we will propose an analysis of the influence of Franco-Laotian artistic cooperation in the emergence of an innovative contemporary object theater in Laos.
