Yngvild Aspeli



Artistic director of Plexus Polaire, Yngvild Aspeli, develops a visual world that brings to life our most buried feelings. The use of life-sized puppets is at the center of her work, but the play of the actor, the presence of the music, the use of light and video, are all equal elements in communicating the story. 

Director, actress and puppet-maker, Yngvild Aspeli, studied at Ecole Jacques Lecoq in Paris (2003-2005) and at ESNAM (Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts de la Marionnette) in Charleville-Mézières (2005-2008). 

Within her French-Norwegian company Plexus Polaire, she has directed four shows: Signals (2011), Opera Opaque (2013), Ashes (2014) and Chambre noire (2017). She is currently working on an adaptation of Moby Dick that will premier in 2020.
