As part of its 30th anniversary project, the Arsenic is putting online on November 3 the database of the 1,200 artists’ projects that have been created, co-produced and presented there. The history of the Arsenic is a success story that is inseparable from that of the independent performing arts in French-speaking Switzerland. The list of Swiss artists who have found international success by creating at the Arsenic is impressive and unique in the country.
Based on this historical record, the paper book, which was edited by Olivier Kaeser and Patrick de Rham, tries to grasp the method and develops more general questions about the present and future of the performing arts.
Founded by Jacques Gardel, then affirmed as an international hub by Thierry Spicher, developed by Sandrine Kuster and refreshed since 2017 under the direction of Patrick de Rham, the Arsenic turned thirty in 2019. The festivities planned for the 2019/20 season, due to the pandemic, have been postponed and will be held on November 3.
Don’t miss the opening of the anniversary publication and the archive site, in the presence of Mr. Grégoire Junod, syndic of the city of Lausanne and Mrs. Florence Bettschart-Narbel, president of the foundation council, personalities of the place, historical artists, the public and of course the faithful supporters of the institution.
Everyone will be able to leave with their own publication!
