The Crochetan theatre in Monthey welcomes artists known nationally and internationally and is committed to innovation and quality.

The Zeughaus Kultur cultural centre represents a key pillar of the cultural scene in Brig. Every two years, in January, the Scènes Valaisannes Festival presents the best professional regional theatrical productions, alternating with the Oh! Festival, which celebrates the accomplishments of international and Valais artists in the field of the performing arts. In Valais the world of theatre is waiting for you to discover it. Don't miss the Hik et Nunk Festival, held in autumn in the streets of Monthey, which is dedicated to contemporary art.
