Where is joy ? 

Theater, visual arts and object theater.


And you ? This device is in the form of a queue for joy.
 With the « Where is Joy » project, we want to bring the possibility of joy back to the core of our existence. This joy they would have us think old fashioned, even outdated. This joy that should apparently be buried and replaced by anger, fear, sadness or disgust. But to face this foursome, we are convinced that « Joy », with « Surprise » as a main ally, still has some glorious days ahead of it for humankind.

An outdoor epic

Object Theater, giant puppets, choir, sound installation The show Odysséia Odysséia tells the fantastic story of Ulysses, the founding tale of our cultural legacy. The show freely captures the words of Homer, explores the theme of travel and questions the link between hospitality and hostility: how does one receive a stranger at home? Les arTpenteurs are preparing a great graphic and acoustic poem, in the form of an outdoor theatrical fresco: silhouettes, puppets and actors will come into action drawing the landscapes, rhythms and songs will be chanted in several languages. In their village of red canvas and green caravans, Les arTpenteurs will display under the stars a machinery of masts, ropes and sails to take the public from island to island. Immediate boarding! Odysséia is the second part of a trilogy about Homer's Odyssey.Last year, the public discovered Odysseus Fantasy, a dreamlike and burlesque trip, dealing with the question of roots, identity, exile and the life course. And in 2020, with If… a green Odyssey.

Les arTpenteurs (celebrating their 20thbirthday) will approach ecological questions and possible answers offered by the trees enlightened point of view.

Meanwhile, a group of professional artists from Plovdiv will be part of the Trakia team, participating in the workshops, welcoming the public and playing a part in the shows.









A metallic parallelepiped looms on stage, a mysterious and enigmatic cube, an allegory of a power that is becoming difficult to identify ... Dominois a dystopian show that wants to draw attention to the progressive loss of freedom of thought. Drawing inspiration from novels such as '1984', from Orwell, 'The New World' by Huxley, 'The Tale of the Girl' by Margaret Atwood, Domino wants to bring attention through a multidisciplinary language ranging from dance, visual projections, theater and music, on the progressive decline of primary goods, on the concrete, slow and gradual loss of freedom of thought, on the rise of new walls and even social borders, on poetry as an instrument of salvation, on the need to believe in something or someone. On the uprising as a necessary act.

The Labyrinth of Migrations



A Show celebrating travel and diversity. A roma family travels to Belgium where it seems that migrants are welcomed. On their way composed of meetings, moments of life, musical sharing, they exchange with other migrants from different countries. Everyone questions in his own way the spectator about the notion of cultural identity. Both engaged and humorous, this storytelling plunges us into the migratory universe with an original point of view. A Show celebrating living together and diversity. One morning like all the others, trees and bushes come to drop their offspring at school when they discover a yurt on the way.
