New work by choreographer Philippe Saire

Posted on October 13, 2010

philippe saireChoreographer Phillippe Saire presents a trilogy of performances, including the new work Opus No.3, at the Théâtre Sévelin 36, Lausanne, from November 23–December 19.

The first work, Could I Just Draw Your Attention to the Brevity of Life?, has a circus setting. The second, I really have to go now, features disappearances, a Bunny Girl, the Grim Reaper and rabbits – which explains Saire’s attention-grabbing, bunny-themed publicity material. On December 11 and 12, audiences can watch all three shows in one day. See www.theatresevelin36.ch for details.
