Exposition Miss Dore Théâtre Français
du 20 au 31 Décembre
With the understudy standing by the théâtre performance of French drama, and opéra must go on.
Every French home during Christmas displays a French scène. Our French home is following tradition of French toy theatre making. Creating, and fashioning 19th century papier toy théâtre, yet ours made of salvage that beckons to become a stage of performances.
I enjoy the hunt, the thrill, the breathtaking pieces of damage that I find beauty in. Then to create an old French threatre that rustically, and hauntingly echos opera, and dance .
A salvaged antique piece of frame work forces me so willingly to be inspired to create a theatre that will perform for years to come. I wanted to create a mesmerizing, and extra ordinary avant-garde show of cabaret, and cirque du soleil. A dramatic stage for performances of holiday shows,
Where all the set designs, and props are built by the hands that create theatre soulfully.
I age it with paints, and salvage anything that inspires what I invision my theatre's to become opening night.
Wire chandeliers bent and twisted, wire ladders, and swings to perform on add to the entertaining of what I love to create for French theatre.
The stage lights are lit, and every piece crafted is in its place.
Notice how sweet a production seen through the strong shape of a wood box turning it into theatre shuts off everything esle, is not only an assistance to performing beauty; it is the beauty in the performance itself.

This bench, stool has many uses, one of a few that can be found in my etsy shop listed on my site.
The start of French theatre to become...
Theatre's emerged in the 19th century as a popular childs toy you would build from paper theatre's mirroring the grandeur of theatres of London, Paris, Vienna, Copenhagen these theatre's flurished in living room's for generations for child's play, and budding performer's.
Nearly every European country as well as the United States created its own. To find one of these rare wood or paper antique theatre's would now hold a pricey tag. I am in hopes that someday someone will find one of my théâtre français, and pass it on for another 100 years.
I added one of Penny's felted sugar plum fairy mice to a performance this year that she was so kind to make her tutu, and ballet shoes in grey for me. You can visit her blog site at... http://angelsdoor.blogspot.com
where she creates in her imagination full of beauty.
Is this little Sugar Plum fairy just the cutest performer you have ever seen.
Thank you Penny for adding to our holiday performances.
Inspiring Théâtre, and our holiday perfomance.
