The newly renovated premises of the Théâtre de Carouge is now open for visits every first Saturday of the month at 11h (1 October 2022 is the next one). It’s free, just reserve in advance at this link. They will show you around every nook and cranny. Planned with the City of Carouge, the architect François Jolliet and the team of the Lausanne firm PONT12 architects, as well as all the various partners, the Théâtre de Carouge is proud of how this has turned out.

Olga Timofeeva, explains to us, "Accompanied by some members of our team, you will walk through the corridors, the foyer, the workshops, as well as the administration. The simplified spaces of the small hall and the rehearsal room located on 3,500 m2 will wow you. The large hall of 460 seats has really boosted what we had before."

The visits are free and take place from 11h-12h30.

Don't forget that The Théâtre de Carouge also hosts these upcoming shows with surtitles in English:

Argan, a wealthy widower, takes medicine upon medicine, purgative after purgative, bleedings, leechings, enemas, and every other remedy under the sun to treat the indefinable, undiagnosable, incurable illness that occupies his every waking moment. His new wife, Béline, patiently awaits his demise so she may inherit his fortune. His daughter Angélique wants to marry her lover Cléante, much to the chagrin of Argan, who means to marry her to Thomas Diafoirus, a doctor... With so many competing interests, so many hidden agendas, it’s no wonder Argan has to play dead in order to learn the truth!

The crème de la crème of experimental theatre!
Two vagabonds, Estragon and Vladimir, are waiting for Godot. Or anyone who can get them out of the mess they’ve got themselves into. But Godot doesn’t come. He never comes. Perhaps he doesn’t even exist...This gallery of rogues in full existential crisis will have you laughing and crying in sympathy at the searing truth of their discussions.

Perdican and Camille spend their tender youth together in a chateau. In adolescence, they go their separate ways; Perdican to study and Camille to a convent. Their days of innocence now behind them, life conspires to bring them face to face once more. Camille prefers to devote her life to God rather than risk being hurt by Perdican. Fuelled by pride and vanity, they wage war against one another, and their cruelty will lead one innocent soul to its demise.

Nora is a woman who fights - to be happy, to be herself, to love her husband and be loved by him, beyond the conventions of her time. She fights to align her deepest human desires with the role that has been assigned to her, to surpass the poignancy and the monotony of a thoroughly structured life. A Doll’s House tells the story of a young woman and, through her, the tale of an entire society in flux.
