This is for me one of the best theater I've ever visited: lovely terrasse to have a drink in the border of the lake, nice programation of contemporary theater performances, and new in this place, some dance performances too!

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.

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.

You can NEVER be disappointed by the very rich and original program of this theater. Excellent pieces, creations, there is an obvious density of great talents, either swiss or foreigners ! Go for it

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!

I got a membership already a long time ago, an interesting choice of plays. You find nearly each time something you love. normally during the season you find more than 3 plays the same day, choice is sometimes difficult
