The Company has played in more than 40 countries. We love traveling the world to share how the Company creates and devises theatre, with students and theatre professionals alike. We have worked with participants of all ages and levels of experience. We believe that through collaboration we can achieve so much more than we could ever possibly do on our own. We are therefore keen to develop relationships with organisations that allow us to tell stories together in extraordinary ways, crossing boundaries of languages and cultures.

The roots of Complicité’s work can be traced back to the training of its members, many of whom studied at the Ecole Jacques Lecoq in Paris. It has had a profound influence on the Company’s approach to theatre making and is at the heart of the Company’s Masterclasses.

Our practice lies in devising and collaboration, and we encourage playfulness, risk taking and willingness to fail.

Our Masterclasses can be anything from one day to longer intensives. To enquire about Complicité leading a Masterclass for your group please fill in this form.

The Roots of Complicité’s Actor Training

Led by Annabel Arden and Kasia Zaremba – Byrne

Dates: Fri 6 – Sun 8 December 2019
10am – 5pm Venue: Tbc (London) Fee: £300

"Theatre has the power to make connections between people. Since its beginning, Complicité has been passionately curious about how to tell a story to an audience in such a way that the many barriers of language and culture could be overcome. This three-day workshop is about establishing a true connection within yourself as an actor that will help you to authentically be with your audience. The workshop will look at how these connections can be made curiously through the body, through play and through physical sensitivity. It will explore how to liberate the actor or performer and bring their focus on the audience. The workshop will draw on the roots of the company’s training that was initialised by Lecoq, Gaulier and Pagneux."
