The tribe

“The equestrian Theater Zingaro is a tribe half-men, half-horses. I like this word tribe. It indicates that his members obey unwritten laws, those of very independent people who chose to live the same adventure, to work together in the same dreams factory, and to offer it to the others.

I like seeing people of the company evolving over time; I like seeing them blooming, as we say it about horses; not only through work but also in the daily life by the intensity of their presence and their relationship to time.”

Artistic Director

Talent is desire

“I do not know if the artists and the horses of Zingaro are the best, I know that they give the best of themselves. I want nothing else from a member of the team or a horse than for it to show its desire to be there, its desire to surpass itself, according to its means. My disappointment can come only from talented people who do not possess the desire to give anymore. As Brel saids, ‘ Talent is desire’.”
Bartabas, extrait du Manifeste pour la vie d’artiste
