About La Cordonnerie

Founded in 1997 in Lyon, La Cordonnerie has developed a multidisciplinary style of creation—fusing theater, film and music—that they call “cine-performance.” The company’s method consists of re-writing and adapting well known stories, from literary classics like Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein to Shakespeare’s Hamlet to fairy tales like Ali Baba and Hansel and Gretel, reading themselves into this profound and infinitely rich material, and shaping the tales into modern and offbeat versions suitable for all audiences over the age of 6 or 8. The adaptation phase is followed by the making of a silent film, which is shown on stage, accompanied by musicians, actors and sound engineers who re-create live the sound texture of the film, using a multitude of instruments and incongruous objects. Since 2005, La Cordonnerie has produced a repertory of seven shows presented regionally, nationally and internationally—totaling over a thousand performances.
