Footsbarn Travelling Theatre is one of the world’s leading touring companies performing for the most part in one of its circus big tops but also in theatres thoughout the world. Footsbarn Travelling Theatre is born from a dream to create a form of theatre that is popular,generous,professional yet accessible to all.To take theatre out of the limits of established buildings and bring it closer to the local population ,to farms ,beaches ,streets and village squares .
The company is renowned for its exciting adaptations of classics such as Shakespeare & Moliere transcending the barrier of language with its unique blend of visual theatre, music and magic.
In forty seven years, Footsbarn has created over 60 productions and travelled to the six continents.
Footsbarn Travelling Theatre began life in Cornwall in 1971, rehearsing in the barn of Trewen, a farmhouse near the village of Trewidland. One of the founder members was Oliver Foot, hence the name. In 1984 the company left Britain to take its brand of theatre to international audiences and remained without a base until 1991 when a farm was purchased in central France, La Chaussée. Today its base is both a fully equipped production centre complete with workshops, rehearsal space, office and studios but also a centre for education. Over the last 25years Footsbarn has organised and staged numerous workshops, which have been taught by both actors from the company as well as professionals associated with Footsbarn.
