The 10th Wuzhen Theatre Festival took place from October 19 to October 29, 2023, in China. One of the most notable productions of this event was “Contes et Légendes” by the French theatrical company Louis Brouillard, a fictional documentary about adolescent self-construction and the myth of the artificial creature.
