The GUEULES DE BOIS

Their story

The Gueules de Bois adventure begins in September 2019, 4 years after the creation of Act’in Theatre.

Having completed the full curriculum of our company, the students of the troupe, have decided to surpass themselves! To do so, we have created the troupe Les Gueules de Bois!

Why the name "Les Gueules de Bois"?

  • ‘GUEULES’

    Masks are THE symbol of Theatre. They are facial expressions that represent acting. In fact, these masks have “faces” so this is our little wink. 🙂

 

  • ‘WOOD’:

    The wood …. of the stage boards of course! It reminds us of the boards but also of our all-wooden studio. Raw material that evolves over time, like our actors!
    Well… we’re not going to hide… our workshops/rehearsals always start with a little drink too!
    And yes! We love to get together every week for our rehearsals! So before ‘working’ we share a moment together and have a drink. So this also symbolizes the conviviality in our troupe! 🙂 (‘Gueule de bois’ which means having a hangover).

That’s the secret of the Gueules de Bois!

When to see the troupe?

In order to get together, we have created the Entre Act’ format which takes place every 5/6 weeks in London in an intimate location.

Entre Act’ is a special two act format.

First act is a small theatre show. The troupe Les Gueules de Bois selects playlets from theatre or film which they assemble and perform in a light-hearted way in an intimate and minimalist setting.

Second act is an improvisation cabaret with the troupe Les Improzac! What could be more fun than improvising, sharing and above all surprising yourself!

So don’t hesitate to follow our calendar of SHOWS

Our next shows:

Tuesday 13th of December 2022, at Toulouse Lautrec
