Teatr Piba is a professional theatre company born and established in Brest – Brittany, France in 2009.
The creation of the company is the logical result of the encounters and collaborations of various artists such as actors, musicians, or directors, united by Breton language. Their crossed career paths and shared experiences lead them to a common desire: a lively and contemporary theatre in Breton.
Since its creation, Teatr Piba considers its artistic work as being an active part of a land: the company defends the idea of a living theatre based on human links, on tangible ties that can only be straightened by time. At the same time, the projects of the company draw the paths of travels, absolutely connected with ‘the world outside’… This travel is deeply conscious of the necessity of going back and forth between territories and exiles, as a driving force for a poetical vision, as a fragile but precious balance between the geography of the homeland and the geography of the imagination.
The company has produced about ten original creations seen by more than 15,000 spectators in France, Laos and the United Kingdom:
