Annecy, France

ALTER EGO (X) is a non-profit organisation and European theatre company based in Annecy and Lausanne. They organise their work around three main pillars: "Transmission" (monthly workshops with non-professionals artists to work on the concept of European identity through theatre) — "Laboratory" (a way through European cooperation to explore the power of arts and especially theatre in tackling major current societal issues, especially by leading/taking part in projects at the crossroads between social, educational and cultural fields) — "Creation" (production of theatre performances inspired by the European context through artistic residences abroad and international touring). The company takes the European cultural landscape as a key element in its development strategy and for this reason they promote the values of sharing and meeting in all their projects. They also aim at creating in and with diversity: they seek to invent theatre formats that allow everyone to express themselves. Their starting point is always linked to the urge of making citizens' voices heard in the common space all over Europe in order to be able to build a European society based on human beings.
