Theatre Sans Frontieres Limited

Théâtre Sans Frontières creates an international theatre of excellence that celebrates world languages and cultures.

Founded 1991

  • Mission statement

    Théâtre Sans Frontières works with actors from around the globe to bring its audiences international stories brimming with energy and excitement and performed in their original language. Renowned for its vibrant and visually-driven productions, TSF makes its work accessible to all through mime, mask, puppetry, clowning, dance and live music. TSF produces theatre for children and adults that range from the light hearted family entertainment of productions like Around the World in 80 Minutes (performed in simple French) to the thought-provoking and moving Lipsynch, a co-production with the internationally renowned Canadian actor, playwright and director, Robert Lepage.

    Since its formation in 1991, TSF has produced over 50 shows in English, French, German and Spanish and toured extensively to theatres, arts centres, schools and colleges throughout the UK and to festivals in Tunisia, Egypt and China.
