I love the craft and feel that the adventure started 10 years ago with Le Théâtre de l’Arbre Perché is not over.

Our purpose is to merge different art forms — such as plays, music, dance and circus — to create unforgettable stage productions for a broad spectrum of contemporary audiences.

In the work for the 2019 season – Sugartown

‘A laugh out loud indie crime play
without bullets, car chases or obvious endings.’

The challenge of executing classical plays for modern audiences makes them an extraordinary field in which to experiment and an unparalleled way to train the discipline of actors’
— Michel Duran, Artistic director

In May 2009. We had the pleasure of presenting Molière’s one-act farcical comedy, Sganarelle, Or The Imaginary Cuckold, for two nights in the beautiful armory of a historical fencing school. The play was accompanied by live baroque music and was followed by a wine and cheese reception during which the audiences had to opportunity to personally meet the actors and musicians. In short, we bring audiences into a full, multi-faceted experience of the world of the play, and not just the play itself. 

Despite financial limitation, TAP presented A Night in Versailles with considerable artistic and administrative success. From fundraising, advertising, designing and building of stage/set, casting and training of actors, a wide range of tasks were effectively completed. Our professional and creative team included 7 actors, 5 musicians, 2 producers, 1 financial director, 1 art director/set designer, 4 set painters, 2 set builders, 1 lighting designer, 1 stage manager and 2 front of house. The production was a successful collaboration between art and business. The event was well received by the two nights of a sold out audience.
