En 2016-2017 la filière en spectacle vivant accueille les artistes suivants : Neville Tranter (Stuffed Puppet Theatre), Martina Winkel et Airan Berg.

Neville Tranter (1955, Toowoomba, Australia) completed his drama studies with the US director Robert Gist in Queensland in 1976, having also trained with the Billbar Puppet Theatre. He founded the Stuffed Puppet Theatre the same year. After the Stuffed Puppet Theatre had taken part in the Festival of Fools in Amsterdam in 1978, Neville Tranter moved from Australia to the Netherlands, where his visual and emotional adult puppet theatre developed to assume its present form. His combination of down to earth humour, deadly seriousness and virtuoso puppetry, often using life size talking puppets, won him international acclaim.
He treated controversial subjects such as “Schicklgruber, alias Adolf Hitler”, about the last days of Hitler and his entourage, and “Punch & Judy in Afghanistan”.
Recently he portrayed the life in a nursing home, where financial considerations play a bigger role than the well being of its old aged residents (Mathilde) and
“The King, downfall of a rockstar”.
Neville Tranter also works as a director and as a teacher in puppetry.
