Theatre plays in museums and castles
We perform professional theatre plays to revive places with a cultural heritage

Since 2012, our professional troupe has specialized in performances in museums, castles and other sites with strong cultural value :
Musée et Institut des Lettres et Manuscrits in Paris / Musée Carnavalet / Histoire de Paris / Crypte archéologique in Notre-Dame de Paris / Maison de Chateaubriand in Chatenay-Malabry (92) / Musée Delacroix / Castle of Auvers-sur-Oise / Univers impressionniste / Air-raid shelters in Bois Colombes (92) / Jardin des Enfeus / Maison de la Boétie and Chapelle des Pénitents Blancs in Sarlat (24) / Château de Puymartin in Sarlat (24) / Château de La Cousse in Coulaures (24) / Festival d'art contemporain Grisy Code in Grisy / Les Plâtres (95)

An exchange of favors is at the origin of our approach: our highly professional performances increase the interest of the public for these sites which are revealed in a different light, whilst their atmosphere is conducive to rendering the texts we are transmitting.
We adjust our shows to the setup, the theme and the demands of the venues. All our performances use historical costumes and are based on authentic texts. Our shows are accurate adaptations of titerary works, plays extracts, speeches, letters, accounts from people that have played a minor role in history as well as those who have left their mark :
Molière, Diderot, Montaigne, Napoléon, Charlotte Corday, Louis XVI, Baudelaire, Rimbaud, Victor Hugo, Camille Claudel, Georges Sand, Charles Péguy, De Gaulle, Jean Cocteau, Edith Piaf...

We possibly perform indoors or outdoors, in 3 different setups, on request :
In the original way of a theatrical stroll inviting the audience to a journey through history whilst visi$ng the venue.
On a stage with a sitting audience
In the form of sketches during a cocktail reception, a meeting or a dinner.

A Midsummer Night's Dream
Buoyed by these encouragements, the 2020 season resumes with a more ambitious show, with four professional actors instead of three like the previous year.
We are adapting "A Midsummer Night's Dream" by William Shakespeare for all audiences: A dive into the magic of this ancient dream for a surprising, funny, poetic and mysterious show in interaction with the public ...
