TEOS, Modern “Agora” of Our Country

TEOS, Modern “Agora” of Our Country



A gathering place which represents the perfect spot to develop the artistic and spiritual life of a country. The Ancient Greeks called it «agora», but today we could translate the term into TEOS, or Top Events of Switzerland.

This association collects the eight best events across the country which give Swiss and international visitors the opportunity to live moments of great music, art and culture.

Let’s begin with cinema to whom our kermesse is dedicated.

The Festival del film Locarno is proud to be part of TEOS and represent the seventh art in its selection.

Music can count on two events: the Lucerne Festival in Sommer that will be held from today until September 15th with a focus on “Faith” and the Montreux Jazz Festival which, this summer, hosted a great parterre of world-famous artists.

The next edition is scheduled for the next summer (July 5-20).

Finally, the figural arts play a major role at Art Basel (next appointment: June 13-16 2013) and its American counterpart at Miami Beach at the end of 2012 (December 6-9).

But there is something new: the first edition of Art Basel in Hong Kong (May 23-26 2013) will present more than 250 of the leading galleries from Asia, Europe and the rest of the world.

The ancient “agora” also involved athletic and sport events, and so TEOS does including four other events: the golf tournament Omega European Masters in Crans-Montana, the Ski World Cup in Wengen, the horse race White Turf in St.

Mortiz and the athletics meeting Weltklasse Zurich.

All these events will be presented in depth in the 11th August Pardo Live edition.
