Located on a sumptuous site bordering the Bois de Vincennes, the famous theatre centre offers a wide range of activities and live performances.

A brief history


In 1874, the city of Paris, owner of the Bois de Vincennes, authorized the construction of a gunpowder factory known as the Cartoucherie de Vincennes. This military complex was home to pyrotechnical workshops in which numerous workers manufactured powder and cartridges, notably the explosive charges used on the front during the First World War. Partially destroyed in 1945, the centre was progressively abandoned and finally closed its doors at the end of the Algerian War. During the summer of 1970, the Théâtre du Soleil troupe decided to renovate the Cartoucherie, thereby giving birth to an independent centre for theatrical creation.

Five theatres


La Cartoucherie has since become an institution housing five different theatres, of which the ever popular Théâtre du Soleil is the most famous. Hidden away in the woods, the Cartoucherie offers spectators a one-of-a-kind theatrical adventure in a unique setting. The atmosphere of the nearby stables offers additional rustic charm!



Steve, 49 ENTREPRENEUR

Comfortable in working-class neighbourhoods and the tonier areas of Paris, I never get tired of rediscovering this timeless city. The Sex Pistols set the pace when I was younger. New technologies fill my working days now. My little extra: discovering fine eating spots around the capital for romantic dinners!
