Founded by its artistic director, Jean-Baptiste Duperray, in 1994, the Compagnie des Quidams has created about fifteen shows. With between 150 and 200 performances per year, the artists of the Compagnie des Quidams have traveled to some fifty countries, from Costa Rica to South Africa, via Japan and Australia.
In a visual, luminous and musical universe, the company introduces strangeness and poetry into everyday life, and with the help of giant costumes and metamorphoses, takes over the public space to transform it for the duration of a show. As in an invitation to dream, everyone can give free rein to his imagination and create his own story.
The company gathers about thirty artists and technicians coming from various horizons (theater, dance, music, circus,...). It is located in Bresse Vallons, a village in the north of the Ain. In parallel to its activity of diffusion, it develops projects of sensitization to the Arts of the Street (public rehearsals, training courses, workshops of artistic practice).
