ilotopie, open theater company

Public spaces are our stages, invention and artistic intervention our modes of action, and all waters are our stages.

Born in the Camargue on the last island of the great Rhône in 1980, our company, a pioneer of street theater, has retained from its aquatic origins a taste for emergence and splash.

Our shows, great theaters in landscape, are performed all over the world, often for thousands of people, transforming everyday places into surrealist representations where the imaginary has taken over.

Together in the house on fire, and yet, entertaining and not giving up, playing  but not forgetting anything, loving and expecting nothing in return, living like hounds, SCREAM !

2024 the  planet, with water lacking here and rising, there water is our stage !

As a shared landscape which our team turns into a gigantic dream, from the water, we shall travel to the edge of the earth to greet you !

Browse among all our offers on our website, then come back to find us on line, as images and living realities… but do not miss our ongoing creation: « essential straw islands ».
