太陽劇団 Théâtre du Soleil
Founded in France in 1964, Théâtre du Soleil is based at La Cartoucherie, a former munitions factory located in a Paris suburb. Known for its visually spectacular productions as well as its uniquely non-hierarchical management style and collaborative approach, it has presented its work across the world. It first toured to Japan in 2001, staging Tambours sur la Digue at the New National Theatre, Tokyo, and causing a stir with its bold use of bunraku puppet theatre.
