Bobino is a theatre located on Paris’s Left Bank on a street well-known for its cultural nightlife. Named after an Italian clown who found fame in Paris in the 19th century, Bobino has an unusual history. Since opening in 1870, the theatre has welcomed an impressive roll call of artists from the French scene, including Edith Piaf and Barbara, but also the American Josephine Baker.

Totally rebuilt in 1985, Bobino experimented with different directions until 2010, when its director pursued a new vision, opening the theatre to one-man-shows, dance, concerts and musicals.
