Founded in Quebec in 1971 by André Viens, Artistic and General Director, the Théâtre Sans Fil (Theatre without Strings) is a giant puppet company. More than 3 million people have attented their productions, most often performed in the native language of each country.

Initially inspired by the classical technique of Japanese Bunraku theatre, the Company successfully united it with original and modern set design, lighting, and music composed by musicians familiar with the art of puppetry.

Fantasy, poetry, make-believe and magic have always figured strongly in TSF’s texts, along with unusual and heroic characters. J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, Ravel’s Bolero and The Child and the Enchantments, Henriette Major’s The Crown of Destiny and The Dream Catchers as well as the classic Hänsel and Gretel tale are some of the spectacular shows that have been created over the years and that cater to audiences of all ages.

Thus far, Théâtre Sans Fil has given more than 3000 performances and brought close to three million spectators from more than 20 countries and four continents into the fantastic and enchanted world of its productions. A “ Theatre Without Strings ”, Théâtre Sans Fil has now become a theatre without borders. The TSF undeniable contribution to the exportation of local artistic productions around the world has awarded the Company with a prestigious Tribute Prize from the RIDEAU, the Quebec association of artistic presenters in 1997.

In 2003, a strategic relocalisation promised new horizons for the Company. In fact, the TSF moves its production centre and offices to the Caserne Letourneux, a magnificient landmark building of Montreal heritage. Completely restaured, this new production and rehersal centre offers an inspiring historic setting for creation. With this new complex, the Théâtre Sans Fil now owns spacious, modern and functionnal spaces, true to the scale and image of its productions.
