Festival de la Cité Lausanne

These include theatre, dance and performance art, classical music, jazz and contemporary music, shows for young audiences, circus, literature, visual arts, architecture… The Festival de la Cité is a contemporary, urban event that openly communicates with the city, its residents and its visitors. The Festival de la Cité promotes art in the city and artistic endeavours in situ. On a broader scale, it aims to create an interaction with art, the public realm and society at large. The Festival also wishes to instill the vibrant nature of contemporary performing arts at the core of the city’s cultural and natural heritage. Since it is free from the social, spatial and aesthetic limits imposed by venue and cost requirements, the Festival fosters accessibility of art and culture to the greatest number of people. What sets the Festival apart from the rest is its ambitious programming and convivial, offbeat spirit! More details

Explore Genève Depuis 2011, Antigel s’applique à construire une proposition artistique unique et singulière en misant sur l’insolite et le décloisonnement artistique au cœur de l’hiver genevois. Musique, danse, performance, sport, fêtes et créations Made In Antigel sont au menu de cette 8e édition qui se tiendra du 26 janvier au 17 février 2018. La 3e Antigel Run, course populaire et festive, retrouve quant à elle son cadre majestueux des parcs des Eaux-Vives et de La Grange le 20 janvier.
Travaillant main dans la main les acteurs locaux, le festival propose une traversée artistique d’une vingtaine de communes en 23 jours et 80 spectacles répartis sur une quarantaine de lieux différents. Une audace artistique, bien sûr, mais aussi sociale et urbanistique, car Antigel raconte son époque, se fond dans le bitume et honore l’esprit d’ouverture d’une région qui en a dans le ventre.
Son ADN atypique et sans équivalent lui vaut aujourd’hui une reconnaissance sur le plan national et international. More details
