Theater am Gleis • Winterthur, Switzerland
A piece for young people about older people in their so-called third life, written by the Swiss literary prize winner Jens Nielsen.

Joined by the musician Pascal Lopinat and the actor Victor Poltier, Eugenie Rebetez creates this piece about family. Through the figures of father, mother and child, she explores the relationship dynamics from three people linked for better, for worse. Vivid, sharp and full of humour.
La Grange de Dorigny • Lausanne, Switzerland

Kaserne Basel • Basel, Switzerland
Philippe Saire creates a choreographic treatment of Tony Kushner's play. The award-winning work speaks of the impact of the arrival of AIDS on society, but also in the broader sense of the individual struggling in the midst of the turmoil of superior forces, religious conviction, politics, and the arrival of a plague.
