For over 30 years, Thierry Suc has acted as tour producer for top French artists including French Pop Star Jean-Jacques Goldman (more than 26 Million albums sold), Mylène Farmer (2 Stade de France tickets (160,000) sold in less than 2 hours 18 months in advance), Yannick Noah (1st preferred personality in France for the past 6 years, 1 Million tickets sold during the last tour), Calogero (multi-awarded artist) and also Zazie, Henri Salvador, Etienne Daho and many more. He produced also international artists such as Stevie Wonder, Santana, George Benson, Marianne Faithfull, David Bowie, Deep Purple or Cock Robin.
In 2000, he founded his company, TS3, to organise musical and dramatic performances. He started by introducing the Gumboots, a lively troop of South African dancers who alternate hectic singing and dancing in France. Three seasons in Paris, a tour throughout France and over 150,000 spectators.
TS3 also co-produced the Choristes tour. Propelled by the hit film of the same time, the show toured France in 2004 and 2005. Over 30 concerts for a triumphant tour, including two shows at the Grand Rex and four at the Palais des Congrès in Paris.
In June 2005, TS3 produced a new version of Carmina Burana in Paris, with choreography by the talented Jin Xing of Shanghai ballet fame.
In the same year, TS3 staged Matthew Bourne’s provocative, exultant Swan Lake for the first time in Paris. It received immediate critical acclaim as well as proving a hit with the public. So it quite naturally came back for a second season at the Mogador theatre in late 2006.
Thierry Suc forged a lasting collaboration with the British choreographer, in order to bring to France his creations having already enjoyed huge success worldwide. He therefore staged Edward Scissorhands at the Théâtre du Châtelet in late 2008.
In November 2006, TS3 also created and staged a new Brazilian show at the Mogador in coproduction with DiletArt, featuring Balé de Rua, a fantastic Brazilian troop, revealed at the Biennale de la Danse de Lyon in 2002. Back in France at the Trianon in early 2008, the troop went on to tour the whole world (Sydney Opera, Barbican, Edinburgh International Festival…).
In 2008, TS3 staged Le Soldat Rose, a musical for children at the Casino de Paris then on tour throughout France. The show was then staged as from December 2008 at the Palais des Congrès de Paris.
Thierry Suc continues to invest in ever more exciting projects. For example TS3 took a share in producing the Australian stage adaptation of cult film Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.
The world première was performed in Sydney, on 7 October. This musical has been performed in the West End London and has opened on Broadway in March 2011.
From September 2011, Thierry Suc has also been staging a new musical Dracula, Love Stronger than Death created by famous French choreographer Kamel Ouali at the Palais des Sports for 3 months. The show is now on tour throughout France, Belgium and Switzerland.
In 2006, Thierry Suc created TS5 to produce top French humourists. Famous actress Valerie Lemercier presented her new show for 4 months in Le Palace in Paris followed by a domestic tour of about 2 years. She came back in Paris for a triumph of 2 months at the Olympia.
In 2008, Eric Antoine joined TS5 and presented his first show to more than 150,000 spectators. Since September 2011, Eric Antoine has been on tour with his new show Mystéric already played 150 times.
In December 2012, Jonathan Lambert will come back with a new show called “Perruques” that he will present in La Cigale in Paris.
Florence Foresti (1,350,000 DVD sold, 635,000 spectators for her last show) who recently joined TS5 will present a new show 5 nights in Paris Bercy and 3 nights in Lyon in front of 80,000 spectators in September 2012.
