The museum is delighted to host theatre creation company Ombres Folles’ latest exhibition – Out of the Shadows. From shadow plays and puppets to ingenious props and music, visitors are invited to engage in the creativity and imagination of Ombres Folles’ work.

The exhibition is on display from:
December 10, 2021 – January 27, 2022.

Ombres Folles’ work seeks to create a world driven by imagination and to awaken the creative mind of young and old alike. Committed to the development of contemporary puppet art, the company explores the playful potential of objects and shadows, while questioning our fears and taboos. By choosing powerful narratives and infusing them with a dose of poetry, humour and humanism, the company’s artists create works that can travel, both geographically and in the hearts of patrons.


Founded in 2005 in Montreal (Quebec), Ombres Folles has created 8 shows and played over 350 performances in Canada, France, Serbia and Ukraine. With her desire to create work that moves away from well-meaning fairy tales, artistic director Maude Gareau trusts in the sharp minds of young audiences. By touring its shows, Ombres Folles allows the imagination of its creators to shine and reach out to a wide variety of audiences.
