Our mission

Professional training

All professionals interested in working as a puppeteer at TDC must have completed a training course to introduce them to the proper handling techniques developed by our theater.

A program has thus been put together by specialists in « sports medicine » to enable our puppeteers to perform at an optimal level both physically and artistically, while overcoming the physical constraints of oversized elements. TDC has also created a special training program for puppeteers, teaching educational entertainment techniques that ultimately triple the performance of extras in large-scale productions.

TDC partners

The ministère de la Culture et des Communications, the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, Desjardins Group, Community Futures, the Conseil régional des élus de la Montérégie Est, the Municipalité régionale de comté and the Municipalité d’Upton are our organization’s primary financial partners.
