Owner description: A Creative Theatre and a European Crossroads Vidy Theatre is open to all and dedicated to contemporary creation, defining itself as a site of encounters between today's art and the widest possible audience. Installed within a building built by the Zurich artist and architect Max Bill for the Swiss national exposition of 1964 (Expo64), it now contains four auditoriums and a vast foyer-bar opening onto the beach of Vidy, with a view over Lake Geneva and the Alps. For artists, it provides an exceptional workspace coupled with a solid production facility and a technical team with a broad range of expertise. For audiences, it provides the opportunity to share powerful artistic experiences, along with numerous events relating the works to major issues our society is currently undergoing.

“great theatre”
Reviewed 9 May 2013

Really good theatre pieces in French but occasional shows with no language. The entrance and restaurant are perfect for an evening with friends, too. Try the home-made tarts - delicious. In the warm weather, it is a great place to stop for the terrace near the lake.

“Brilliant theatre company”
Reviewed 31 March 2013

Sadly they weren't performing when we were in Lausanne - we saw them a month earlier in Sydney. A stand out performance, an innovative and creative company.

“Experimental and modern theatre in a "jolie" natural area”
Reviewed 13 February 2013

I enjoyed this theatre thanks to some modern experimental pièces and concerts. I'm always interested in new theatral stuff and this is one of the best places where to go and find whatever I search.
Moreover, is just by the lake side, not bad for a walk or an aperitif after the show!
