Up and Away to Avignon!

Avignon in July offers visitors everything except boredom, with the annual theatre festival holding the city in thrall. From 16 to 24 July 2016, young stage practitioners can gain close-up experience of this unique event by taking part in an international project for up-and-coming theatre artists. «Le Séminaire en Avignon», which includes accompaniment by an experienced coach, is organised by Pro Helvetia in conjunction with the festival management. Theatre practitioners active in Switzerland can download an application form here or obtain it via theater@prohelvetia.ch.
