Forward March for Avignon Off!

The first two editions of Sélection Suisse en Avignon have been a great success. More than 150 performances shown in various countries have resulted from the appearances of nine exciting Swiss companies at Avignon OFF 2016 and 1017. The call for applications for next year’s selection is now open.

«King Kong Théorie» by Émilie Charriot, «Conférence des Choses» by 2b Company, «Une femme au soleil» by Perrine Valli and «Le Récital des Postures» by Yasmine Hugonnet toured widely throughout France, Belgium, Germany, Italy and Canada. The performances by Yan Duyvendak & Omar Ghayatt, Daniel Hellmann and Martin Schick (+Gremaud/Pavillon) as well as the piece for a young audience by Katy Hernan & Barbara Schlittler were also very well received and have several tours in prospect.
Having just concluded this year’s edition, it is already time to think about the next festival. The call for applications for the 2018 Sélection Suisse en Avignon is now open. Companies have until 17 November 2017 to submit their dossier.
