The Festival de la Cité Lausanne has
concocted an intense programme, both
accessible and edgy, which will include elements of surprise for most of its very
wide audiences. Quality and originality are key words in the line-ups, which
put together our favourites of the moment and creations, artistic encounters,
multidisciplinary projects and surprise carte blanche shows with a focus on
on-location performances interacting with all aspects of public space, whether
it be urban, natural, or social in nature.
The Festival strives to puts itself into
question at every new edition by
initiating new projects, helping new
ideas materialise, bringing about an element of surprise, in other words by doing
things better - in a different way. Collaborations with the Festival's partners
are particularly welcome.
A melting pot of diverse forms of expressions
advocating open-mindedness, the
programme provides a platform between young talents and experienced artists,
local and international performers, all of which are professionals.
