Loneliness and collectivity, brutality and protection, control and chaos, LES VAGUES navigates between opposites in an unstable present and future world where adaptation is crucial to survival. LES VAGUES harnesses salvaging energy and collective strength to overcome the brutality of relationships and our environment by exploring one’s physical limitations.


Nunzio Impellizzeri’s choreography explores the constant energy of modern life. Its frenetic rhythm reflects the constant cultural evolution of our times. In this continuous flow, the five performers invite us to melt into a collective dynamic.

MARCHEPIED Co. (Lausanne) is a Swiss project, a Vaud initiative listening to the young generations of contemporary dance performers. It engages in a dynamic of employability for freshly graduated dancers by offering them a paid immersion space that supports their career beginnings.
A veritable, payed, professional springboard over a period of 6 months, the MARCHEPIED Co. offers 5 graduate candidates, at the end of their training, an artistic enhancement and professional visibility through the experience of choreographic creation and performances on national and international stages.
This program of immediate recognition and of total immersion, is a dive into the professional environment, a space for consolidating the tools expected by recruiting choreographers. It is an experience where you encounter real choreographic conditions and develop networks with Swiss and foreign companies.
This work and research space facilitates the professional integration of emerging dancers through open spaces, masterclasses and workshops with internationally renowned choreographers, original choreographic creations, cultural mediation activities and a 20-date tour organised in Switzerland and abroad.
