Tour dates

It’s in 1981 that the company is founded by Charlot Lemoine and Tania Castaing. Their first show takes place on an old english butchers bike. Rapidly this show which uses objects and miniature marionnettes becomes a point of reference and gives the company its name « Vélo Théâtre ».
In 1985 the company leaves the Maine et Loire and installs in the south east of France in the Vaucluse. Precursor of the object theater, its poetic universe is recognized in numerous festivals in France and abroad.
In 1992 the company rents an old fruit preserving factory in Apt to create a new show. Initially temporary, the installation is perpetuated by the municipal willingness to support the emergence of a house of artists. The scene Vélo Théâtre is born, and soon its work is recognized and supported by the State, the Region, the Department and the surrounding towns and villages.
Thus as the Vélo in Apt lives and vibrates with its daily adventures, the company continues creating and touring new performances, offering its silent imagination and joy of acting to a cosmopolitan audience.
