The Equestrian Theatre Zingaro has been based in the Fort of Aubervilliers since 1989. At Bartabas’s request, with the support of Mr. Jack Lang, who was then the Minister of Culture of France and of Mr. Jack Ralite, then Mayor of Aubervilliers, this project was made a reality.
Bartabas wanted a place matching the identity of the artistic genre he created: the Equestrian Theatre; to provide the company with the minimum of installation needed in order to keep developing its art with its horses and artists.
The Zingaro Equestrian Theatre is now world renowned and welcomes more than 60.000 spectators a year for the shows created by Bartabas. It is the place of creation and performance of Zingaro’s shows but also a home for the artists of the troupe, as well as the administrative and logistical base of the company.
