Théâtre Libre

A physical theatre company based in London


Théâtre Libre is a physical theatre company founded in 2009 and based in London, UK. 

Inspired by André Antoine, the name 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.

We aim to use various acting styles and high levels of physicality to re-introduce classics, questioning and exploring their relevance in modern society.
