Basel hosts the Swiss Dance Days 2021

The 11th edition of the Swiss Dance Days will take place from 3 to 7 February 2021 in Basel. Six theatres in the region are collaborating with Reso - Réseau Danse Suisse for this event: junges theater basel, Kaserne Basel, Dornach, ROXY Birsfelden, Theater Basel and Vorstadttheater Basel.


The jury 2021 is selected and has started its mission for the «Final Selection»:

- Dr. Adriana Almeida Pees, Artistic Director and Curator Dance, Theater Freiburg
- Selina Beghetto, Dramaturge, Lucerne
- Rares Donca, Director, L’Abri, Geneva
- Foofwa d’Imobilité, Choreographer, Geneva (with a Carte Blanche)

Over the course of a year, the jury members screen all new dance productions from all over Switzerland and select a range of varied, high-quality pieces for the Swiss Dance Days programme, providing an insight into Swiss choreographic creation. This "Final Selection" will be announced in October 2020.

Scouting for the Swiss Dance Days 2021!

In the autumn, the new jury of the Swiss Dance Days will begin scouting for the 2021 edition. Reso supports the jury and gathers all the tour dates of Swiss dance productions, the first of which are between September 2018 and August 2020. In order to facilitate our research, we ask all Swiss dance companies to inform us of their tour dates for the upcoming season and to send us, if necessary, video links of their plays.
