founded in the summer of 1992 in the mountains surrounding salzburg, lawine torrèn is a network of dancers, actors, media-artists, and technicians working in co-operation with their artistic director: hubert lepka.


lawine torrèn turns existing places into stages for its dramatic art which lies outside traditional formal categories. dance, theatre, medial art, machines and music merge with alpine techniques and thus create extraordinarily sensitive yet breathtakingly spectacular performances.


lepka's creations do not mirror reality, they are variations on reality, additions to reality, attention-catchers, exciting stories in a contempory world of images, unusual performance venues and the use of eccentric elements create a unique theatrical style. quintessentially lawine torrèn.
