City of Lausanne • Lausanne, Switzerland
This dance piece reinterprets the myth of the eponymous Greek, the the hunter turned into a stag by the goddess Artemis then torn apart by hounds. It unfolds in the fascinating and controversial world of hunting, allegorically addressing our relationship with the wild, a «utopia of nature».
Théâtre Sévelin 36 • Lausanne, Switzerland
No profession can match that of camgirl in discussing globalization 2.0, both in terms of the circulation of money it implies and the technical devices it invents. For a country like Romania, still struggling in the post-Ceauşescu years, this flourishing and highly structured business is a bargain.
Théâtre Saint-Gervais • Geneva, Switzerland
Dealing with humour and the topic of liquid life, The Wide West Show is a choreographic stream of change, comedy and conquest. A parade of failed progress. A glide on capitalistic ruins encapsulated in ridiculous bodies.
Arsenic • Lausanne, Switzerland
A String Quartet and actors join to explore the mysterious connections between music and space, and conduct various experiments. How does a cloud traverse the skies? How can we make people disappear? How do we capture an echo? It’s about the discoveries that can be made when there is no objective.
Schauspielhaus, Schiffbau • Zürich, Switzerland
Accompanied by two dancers and a musician, Massimo Furlan invites Italian immigrants living in Lausanne to share their memories and dreams: of their native Italy that they left behind fifty years ago and of modern-day Switzerland that they helped build.
