An independant performing arts scene

Away from the mainstream media, today’s independent artists are inventive, uninhibited and globally connected, bypassing traditional avenues to reach an open-minded and adventurous audience.

This is art that is comfortable expressing itself in any language, local or international, regardless of prevailing trends.
And it is performed anywhere and everywhere, from homes, bars and public spaces to small festivals, right through to the biggest events in Switzerland, Europe and beyond.

Catalyse promotes this movement as best it can and strives to support events, organizers and venues who showcase artists for the value they bring rather than the audiences they draw.
