STORY. STARTED AT THE AGE OF 6 WITH THEATRE
WHO IS ALIEN VOYAGERS
Franck Le lay, French nationality, born 19 July 1974 in Morlaix, Bretagne, France. Inspired from young age of 6 years old, by my artistic parents and family. I get a big interest and taste for inside and outside theatre.
That’s when I started to work in a Puppet Theatre from the age of 15 years old. I learned diverse disciplines for theatre by working with different companies in France. I have been driven by passion and perfectionism since the beginning of my journey.
At the end of 1997 I moved to Amsterdam in the Netherlands. I started to work and meet people in the theatre world in the Netherlands. At first I co-founded Alien Voyagers with Jennifer Carbutt, costume maker and performer from Sud Africa. When Jennifer left the company in 2001, I went on in the company as the artistic leader.
Since 2001 I am performing international with my group Alien Voyagers. I’ve worked together with a lot of dutch and international companies. As a performer or as a designer making custom theatre pieces.
Alien Voyagers has experience performing small and big shows for international theatre festivals. We give dreams and imaginations to the public.
