Overview

A Creative Theatre and a European Crossroads Vidy Theatre is open to all and dedicated to contemporary creation, defining itself as a site of encounters between today's art and the widest possible audience. Installed within a building built by the Zurich artist and architect Max Bill for the Swiss national exposition of 1964 (Expo64), it now contains four auditoriums and a vast foyer-bar opening onto the beach of Vidy, with a view over Lake Geneva and the Alps. For artists, it provides an exceptional workspace coupled with a solid production facility and a technical team with a broad range of expertise. For audiences, it provides the opportunity to share powerful artistic experiences, along with numerous events relating the works to major issues our society is currently undergoing.

Sadly they weren't performing when we were in Lausanne - we saw them a month earlier in Sydney. A stand out performance, an innovative and creative company.

I got a membership already a long time ago, an interesting choice of plays. You find nearly each time something you love. normally during the season you find more than 3 plays the same day, choice is sometimes difficult
