The Equestrian theatre of Brittany is unique in its kind in the region, and is to be found in La Chapelle Gaceline. Although essentially focused on equestrian shows and performances, it is open to all types of artistic encounters.
“SAMOURAÏ” – from July 6th to August 31st 2016
A show put on at the Equestrian Theatre in La Chapelle Gaceline every wednesday evening at 8.30.
The Equestrian Theatre of Brittany
The Equestrian Theatre of Brittany was inaugurated on September 7th 2012 in La Chapelle Gaceline, a commune in the Pays de La Gacilly, Morbihan, 50 km from Rennes and 20 km from Redon.
This artistic and cultural project is the fruit of the imagination and hard work of the director of the Theatre, Patrick Massé.
The building spread over 1000 square metres and surrounded by 5 hectares of pasture on the banks of the river Aff, accommodates the stables, the stage, tiered seating for 192 spectators, sound and lighting equipment, the dressing rooms and a museum dedicated to the art of making spurs.
The museum shows Patrick Massé’s private collection of spurs from all over the world, a collection that he has called “A Journey in the Saddle”.
Last but not least, the Equestrian Theatre believes in the importance of opening the minds of our young children, and has therefore created an educational project for children in primary schools and in summer camps, and in the local community recreation centres.
The Equus Arte Company was founded by Patrick Massé 15 years ago.
Initially nomadic, it is now resident at the Equestrian Theatre of Brittany in La Chapelle Gaceline, where it can rehearse and perform its shows.
The Troup in itself is made up of a core group of horsemen and women with their horses, and, depending on the creation in question, brings in other artists from a variety of other horizons.
However even if Equus Arte is a professional troop with professional ambitions, it is above all a family where each brings his or her own personality and experience to the whole.
A meeting with Patrick Massé, an experienced horseman and stage director
Patrick Massé invites those passionate about horses, and those who know nothing, to partake of a cup of tea or coffee and share with him his universe of the Equestrian Theatre and discover, too, the Museum of Spurs, and his “Travels in a Saddle” collection.
In addition to all this he will also give a demonstration of what a show-horse can do.
