The temporary theatre imagined by BUREAU A is an itinerary settlement moving with the comedian from town to town. Its details and assembling are conceived to be dismantled and stored easily; architecture at its minimum. A sweat lodge built out of the same materials encourage the visitors and the actors to dress down and celebrate a moment of utopian gathering. (text by Bureau A)

The mountains have the power to call for feelings of fascination and fear at the same time. Switzerland has a strong tradition of observing the Alps, living with them, hiding inside them. The awe and the anxiety that this monumental landscape appeals is reflected in the writings of Charles-Ferdinand Ramuz, one of the most important Swiss writers. His novels, Derborence, describes the massive rock fall that covered the pastures of the valley of Lizerne in 1714. Antoine, the main character, survives seven weeks under the rocks before he manages to reach his village, and life. ANTOINE is a tribute to the alpine experience and to the writer.
