About us

Inspired by André Antoine, Théâtre Libre means simply,  free theatre.

This is exactly what the company strives to create; theatre for everyone free from the constraints of class, status, or censorship.

Founded in 2009, we use high levels of physicality to re-introduce classics, questioning and exploring their relevance in modern society.
