Festival Description

La Bâtie - Festival de Genève goes back to 1977 when the founders held the festival at a wooded site near the centre of town, the Bois de la Bâtie, which gave the event its name. By 1983, the festival was reorganized so that most performances took place in theatres or other appropriate venues. Musicians, theatre people, and dancers held performances and cultural events in urban spaces thereby giving them their rightful place in the life of the city of Geneva. The organisers, aware of the festival’s potential to project an image of Geneva as a dynamic, innovative, open and culturally diverse city.
