Vélo Théâtre

A visually stunning theatre of objects capable of inspiring emotion with a subtle allusion. A theatrical universe at once profound and playful, dense and crystalline, intimate and universal.

A shipwreck leaves a child orphaned…
The performance evokes the memories of a father returning to childhood, Navratil ("he who shall return" in Czech), replaying and remodelling the moments of joy and sadness which marked his childhood, steeped in dreams and nightmares. A visually stunning theatre of objects where subtle allusions evoke universal themes.
With little more than some paper, a white dress and three flowers, a whole world begins to take shape, oscillating poetically between memory and reality, childhood and adult life.
The Vélo Théâtre started out performing in the street in 1978. Over the years the company has developed its own distinctive theatrical language, using everyday items to explore the outer limits of what object theatre can be. Latitudes is true to this tradition, forming a close bond with the audience in a tender exploration of the fragility of life.
