1515... Marignan!

This is in short what every Swiss citizen remembers about Swiss history.

500 years later, what remains of this battle? 

It is on this question that about twenty creators and composers from Switzerland and Lombardy have worked in international pairs to create a utopian armor.

Each costume has its own musical composition.

On stage, four musicians from the Klangbox Ensemble will perform these musical compositions in the eccentric costumes of modern mercenaries, the fruit of composers and designers.


XiViX Op. 1515 is the promise of a theatrical-musical show that looks like a dreamlike, offbeat, funny battlefield, flamboyant with sounds, shapes and textures.
