Georgette Garbes Putzel @ TMM

Georgette Garbès Putzel and Theatre Mosaic Mond (TMM) explore and create for stage and film.  Georgette Garbès Putzel explores, acts, directs, writes, designs and teaches.  At TMM, we strongly believe that LIFE IS A MOSAIC; DIVERSITY IS ESSENTIAL.  Georgette Garbès Putzel invites a diversity of artists to join her in her explorations.  Georgette Garbès Putzel is also offering Workshops and Labs.  TMM also Contact her. 

  • Where, how, when and touring

The TMM Company expores & creates from its studio in Jericho, Vermont (USA), presents all year long, and has the world for its stage.  Each TMM play debuts at The Off Center for the Dramatics Arts in Burlington, VT.  A play can then tour anywhere by invitation or its own programing. Any stage format will be considered.  The team at TMM will carefully read submissions by playwrights.

  • Philosophy

Life is a mosaic; Diversity is essential.
TMM believes that diversity is essential, in Biology as well as in the Arts, and in Theater. TMM believes that there is space for each creature and creation, on Earth and on Stage. Diversity is what will keep Theater not only alive but growing well and happy. Diversity at every level. Diversity in the range of choice offered to the audience. And diversity at the level of each creation.
TMM is commercially a risk taker. TMM certainly is influenced by Georgette Garbes Putzel’s European and North African roots as well as her Canadian and North American experience; TMM is welcoming other cultures to be part of the creations. However, TMM does not marginalize itself and its audience because of a specific ethnicity, or class or gender or religion. TMM is simply the product of 3 and more cultures. TMM does not want to shock but to disturb the bourgeois habits of stage while not being ex-centric.

  • Professionalism

Without an attitude.
At TMM we train, act, create and produce in a professional manner. At TMM no one has “an attitude”. At TMM we believe in hard work and creativity. At TMM we select the plays without commercial considerations; each selection reflects an artistic and humanistic urge to communicate some important aspect of life. At TMM each play is minutely rehearsed. The creation is at the end a team product. Innovation lies not necessarily in the choice of the play but in the ways to present it.

  • Practices

Every TMM production diverges from current practice.  Watch the video, discover the actors and Read more about each play by visiting the page "Past Plays" on www.theatremosaicmond.net.   Read comments from audience and critics at the page "They Talk About It" on www.theatremosaicmond.net. 
Visit from Miss Prothero (TMM 2009) is traditionally viewed as a TV British comedy. TMM was intrigued by the underlying drama so well scripted by Alan Bennett and presented it with a focus on relationships. The social relationship between two ordinary people. One of the two characters had a French accent.  No Exit (or Huis Clos in French), by Jean Paul Sartre, (TMM 2010) is often viewed as a heavy philosophical, dark, not to say boring for the stage audience, piece. Most people remember Sartre by the famous line from No Exit: “Hell is other people”. What we mostly forgot is what Sartre himself said about his play: ”Hell is the other people has always been misunderstood.” (Paris 1965.) TMM wanted to bring back to stage Sartre’s view. We did it in English and in French, back to back. Mrs Warren’s Profession was on stage in May 2011. Again TMM focused on the relationships between the characters and between the characters and their daily involvements and professions.  Asterion, written by Diego Mattos was a one actor play using minimalist staging, physical acting, movement, poetry and live instruments. It was prsented in English and Spanish, back to back each evening.  Fugato Labile for Camille Claudel, written, directed, stage & costume designed and interpreted by Georgette Garbès Putzel, was presented in English and in French, back to back each evening.  Projections and live accordion.  Those Mothers, written by UVM professor Tina Escaja, was directed, stage & costume designed and partly interpreted by Georgette Garbès Putzel.  Fantasia de Colores, written by Maura Campbell, was directed, stage & costume designed and partly interpreted by Georgette Garbès Putzel. 

TMM designs and organizes Healing Events for families and friends of terminally ill persons. Each event is tailored to the specific needs (in English and french) and dreams of the ill person with the participation of their friends and family.  TMM involves the family and friends of the person in designing and carrying out of the project. Each event is as unique as each of us is. TMM respects your privacy. Please use the Contact Form at the bottom of the page http://www.theatremosaicmond.net/off-stage/tmm-healing-events/.  Thank you.

TMM designs and offers French Language services:  Teaching and Translation.  http://www.theatremosaicmond.net/off-stage/flc-french-language-services
