CAMILLE is an immersive interdisciplinary performance that gives no visual input to its audience.

The Legend of Goldbeard has won over audiences in more than 80 performances since 2019, and is the subject of an audiobook to extend the adventure at home.
LES SAGES FOUS
Les Sages Fous propose a theatre of paradoxes: grotesque and poetic, ritual and mundane, domestic and marvelous. The company recreates a lost world where the mask, the puppet, the object, and the human coexist. A theatre where images and gestures speak more strongly than words. theatre that is surprising and disturbing, wild and undisciplined.

A transdisciplinary artist, a playwright, a teacher, a ritualist and a performer, Stéphane Crête is a versatile all-rounder who has been navigating as easily in mainstream productions as in experimental theater for over 25 years.
Through sometimes unclassifiable works (where seriousness and playfulness meet) he seeks to shake the perceptions of the spectator by questioning mainly the notion of representation (Esteban, Mycologie, Les Laboratoires Crête, Mauvais goût).
