The pleasure of using a wheelchair 14, 15 October

Not so much a performance, more an experiment. If you register by calling 04 42 18 19 88 you can join in a public event in Aubagne (buses to Aubagne from Castellane metro station). Accessibility is a problem in and around Marseille. The Tony Clifton circus' Mission Roosevelt is a different way of drawing attention to the problem. It's part of the Small is Beautiful season, details of which are on  our website.

This is the Tony Clifton Circus website.

The theatre is not in the city centre but there are buses (navettes) that you can book at the same time as tickets (full price 20€). For more information see our website.
