Le Carrousel (Canada)

Convinced of the need for a true artistic encounter, Le Carrousel places at the core of its creative approach the question “What should we say to children?” and reflects deeply on artists’ self-censorship when dealing with young audiences.


Supported by creative research that breaks through limits and boundaries, artistic directors Suzanne Lebeau and Gervais Gaudreault have used their passion to form a repertoire of original works that are considered, in Quebec and abroad, to be milestones in the history of theatre for young audiences..

This unique vision of childhood and art, manifested in the emotional charge and intensity of Suzanne Lebeau’s texts and the inventive sensitivity of Gervais Gaudreault’s directing, has made the company’s reputation on national and international stages. For more than 35 years, Le Carrousel has sought to tear down the walls between audiences and between practices, out of the conviction that theatre for children must also reach out to and even disturb adults.
