Shake Geneva

Festival Antigel has become an important event in the Swiss artistic landscape over recent years. Its 2019 edition has been entitled «Shake Geneva» and will take place from 1 to 23 February in various places in and around the city.

Antigel follows a bold and innovative idea, simultaneously addressing cultural, social and urban issues. By charting new cultural territories, the festival creates an artistic dynamic between the centre and the periphery of the canton. Showing cultural events in unusual settings, it invites the audience to venture away from the main focus points of the city to explore the diversity of Geneva’s environs.
The festival focuses on a strong music programme, but also includes the performing arts and interdisciplinary formats. During three intense weeks of artistic discoveries, the following Swiss performing arts productions can be seen:
