Our partners

The Béjart Ballet Lausanne would like to graciously thank its partners, sponsors and contributors, who provide the necessary financial support for its development, but also for their encouragement and undeniable support for the work behind the Company’s artistic creation, as well as for the Rudra Béjart School Lausanne’s students’ training.

Institutional Partners

Introduced a little over a half a century ago in Lausanne, choreography has found a home to establish itself in under all its forms. A pioneer in cultural politics with a strong conviction for supporting dance, the city of Lausanne ceased the opportunity, since the 80s, to promote and defend this development. The strong ties developed throughout the years between the city and its institutions have allowed for the formation of crucial and fundamental structures for choreography, the insurance of the continuing presence of its intermediaries, and for the emergence and settlement of the best creators, schools, companies and festivals. All of these developments contribute to the city’s identity of being an international capital city for choreography, reinforced with the nearly 30 year presence of the Béjart Ballet Lausanne.

Founded in 1988, the Fonds intercommunal de soutien aux Institutions culturelles of the Lausanne region is composed today of 20 district members. They provide an annual fund that a management committee is responsible for and then distributes to its four supported institutions: Béjart Ballet Lausanne, l’Opéra de Lausanne, le Théâtre de Vidy and the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne.

Pro Helvetia supports and distributes Swiss arts and culture. The foundation holds active branches in the entire world and gives new cultural impulses due to its efforts. Pro Helvetia privileges diversity and quality. As an encouragement body of the Confederation, it supports projects of national interests and importance. The foundation encourages artistic creation, cultural exchanges in Switzerland and abroad, innovative projects, and cultural mediation.

A never before seen performance of the Béjart Ballet Lausanne, an exhibition devoted to the rise of l’Art Brut, an electronic party with furious rhythms, a theatrical premiere…in Lausanne, culture takes on all sorts of forms all year long. This wealth of eclectic locations and artistic events can all be compared to any large European city.
