NO’PHOTO

Biennale of Photography

Discover how and what contemporary photography reveals, testifies, honors or denounces through screenings, shows, exhibitions, workshops and various activities. The photographers’ eye and artistic bias offer us new perspectives on our world and quite a striking reality-check. For the third time, NO'PHOTO honors the work of these artists - and more particularly the local ones. Check the extremely rich and varied programme.

ORCHESTRE OF THE SUISSE ROMANDE

“Rachmaninov & Tchaïkovski”

This Russian program brings together two exalted composers tortured by their inner demons between recurrent depressions for Rachmaninov and constant mal de vivre for Tchaikovsky. During the month of Pink October, the musicians of the OSR invite the public to dress in pink to raise awareness of the activities of the Breast Cancer Network. An information booth will be set up for the audience, and an appeal for donations to the association will take place before the concert and during the intermission.
