Artichoke comes from Pablo Neruda's poem, Ode to the Artichoke.

And also because it tastes good and is good for the faith.


Artichoke is a protean entity with warrior scales and a big green heart, with a collective, spiritual, ecological and artistic vocation.


Artichoke was born in 2010, with the genetic wish that it be a space for the release of creative potential.

            For actors who play in shows

            For spectators attending the show.

            For participants in workshops and courses organized by the company.



Our desire is to offer activities that vibrate at the frequency of the heart of the spectators to make them make quantum leaps in space-time. Inspired by the initiatory dimension of tales and mythological archetypes. We mix artistic disciplines, theatre, poetry, dance and music. We make a theater  permaschool*  »



Throughout our shows, performances and workshops, the spirit of Artichoke emerges.

We created  5 shows. Two projects are underway

  • Back from Vacation. in 2010

  • The Cabaret Co[s]mique in 2011

  • The Great Turnaround in 2013

  • Minotaur and Schmetterling <> (fr) Papillon in 2014

  • Employee Arthur in the land of the Great Depression in 2016

  • ZURP Project, Zone of Realistic Priority Utopias in 2016


And led many workshops by focusing the pedagogy around "  deep and thorough improvisation  ".

Especially with teenagers and children. And in particular within the framework of aid programs for equal opportunities  (program aimed at giving children from modest backgrounds the desire to pursue higher education).




                                              *permacole, of permaculture, is said of a mode of conception of autonomous ecosystems, in harmony with nature and favorable to the development of individuals



We are also in  search for a place for the creation of a space for the materialization of dreams or a permacultural and creative café, a place of permaculture, associating in a collaborative and ecological approach - in the original sense - the restoration of bodies, souls and spirits: by theatrical and artistic creation - internships, workshops, show creations -, the production of organic fruit and vegetables in a shared garden, the running of a shared restaurant and kitchen, the marketing of products without packaging in a small grocery store. Notice to amateurs, if you know a suitable place, contact us!
