Daisy Doll

We are a little theatre troupe consisting of three actors in Paris. We started off with a little idea for a sketch in 2012 at the Cours Florent, and it received great encouragement and excitement which led us to create a one hour long performance. Thanks to the talented writer Marion Subtil we managed to have a script that matched our perception of the play, and thus, the rehearsals began. Our aim is to perform in a theatre in Paris to eventually make a living under the name of Daisy Doll. We hope this site will make you want to see more, as we will want to give you more. Daisy Doll grows everyday, and we would for you to be a part of it! We hope you enjoy what you see and we wish you a very Daisy day!

Daisy Doll

<p> ****************************************************************************************</p> <p>  </p> <p> THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL OF YOUR HELP !!!</p> <p>  </p> <p> ****************************************************************************************</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  First, there is <a href="http://www.facebook.com/daisydolllana" target="_blank">Daisy.</a> She comes from Kansas and speaks with a strong and intimidating accent. She is straight forward, with a strong personality, and some might even say, a little bit vulgar. This dummy has accompagned Lana Boy since she was a 12 year old girl and would come out to entertain friends and family. </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> Now, there is also ventriloquism. As an exam for her class at the Cours Florent, Lana Boy is faced with the challenge to create a theatre performance that must last 7 minutes long. In the exam, there are no rules, and Lana decided to write out a sketch about Daisy. But instead of having a dummy, she was the dummy.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> Daisy is a rebel character, who refuses to let herself be manipulated by Bill, the ventriloquist. </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> Between a humor sketch and a poetic performance, the little scene received a great success and the judges where very enthusiastic about the performance. They pushed Lana to build on the short scene and make a play that would last an hour long. Lana then turned to Marion Subtil, another student in her class, to write a text based on what she had seen.</p> <p>  </p> <p> And so, this is how <em>Daisy Doll</em> has to come to appear on your screen. </p> <p>  </p> <p> This project consists of <strong>3 actors</strong>:</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Lana Boy </strong>will be interpreting <strong>Daisy Doll</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Aurélien Lucas,</strong> will be interpreting <strong>Bill Le Ventriloque</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Topi Pudas</strong>, will be interpreting<strong> Le Musicien</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> And our writer and director, <strong>Marion Subtil. </strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> Our play now consists of a mix between dance, theatre, tap dancing, singing, and music to create a spectacular show with a mysterious vibe.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> Also, thanks to <a href="http://schmae.tumblr.com/" target="_blank">Mae Ferron</a>, a very young artist of 17 years old, was inspired by our project and showed us her first vision of the poster.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m55rszuXI51rnhphwo1_1280.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m55rszuXI51rnhphwo1_1280.jpg"></a></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <u><strong>THE TEAM</strong></u></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <em>ACTRESS</em></p> <p> <em>DAISY DOLL: ORIGINAL IDEA BY LANA BOY</em></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img src="http://www.lanaboy.book.fr/files/gal/113753/hj2btxubi4.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> Lana Boy is a 20 year old actress who performed for the first time at the age of 8  in the play "Alice in Wonderland" as the Chechire Cat.

With her IB diploma in hand, she then moved to Paris to join the Cours Florent. It was then she created a 7 minute scene on Daisy Doll that caused the judges to push her to write a longer version with Marion Subtil. </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <em>AURELIEN LUCAS / BILL</em></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img src="http://www.aurel426.book.fr/files/gal/115595/w6tdlrk744.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> Aurelien Lucas started off his theatrical career in August 2010 in a summer course at the Cours Florent, in Paris.
