What is Manufacture?
HETSR or the Haute école de théâtre de Suisse romande, is better known as La Manufacture after the converted factory building it occupies in Lausanne, Switzerland.
This applied university of theatre studies offers bachelors and masters degrees in acting, direction, dance and technical training. Manufacture also runs a lively research and development program which is the home of the DS/PS project among others.
The following video is in French but even for non-French speakers should convey some of the serious but playful spirit of the school. More infromation can be found on the school’s website in both English and French.
