Every year nearly three thousand directors and programmers of theatres and festivals from around the world come to the Avignon Festival on the lookout for new additions for their programmes. Thanks to the «Sélection suisse» – a joint project of Corodis and of Pro Helvetia –, Swiss artists and performers benefit from a personalised accompaniment that generates contacts and tours within the framework of France’s cultural network.
The third «Sélection suisse en Avignon (SCH)» – the Swiss selection for Avignon Festival – is now known. The SCH artistic management has selected the following projects for 2018:
- «These Are My Principles… If you don’t like them I have others» by Phil Hayes (performance)
- «Quitter la Terre» by SNAUT/Joël Maillard (theatre)
- «Hocus Pocus» by Cie Philippe Saire (dance for young audience)
- «Knusa / Insert Coins» by Cie Greffe/Cindy Van Acker & Christian Lutz (dance, photography).
These companies will perform during the Festival OFF at Avignon between 6 and 24 July 2018.
