Swiss Dance Days was founded in 1996. It was modelled after the Rencontres chorégraphiques de Seine-Saint-Denis in Paris, a pioneering festival that’s been dedicated to contemporary choreographic creation since 1969. Swiss Dance Days made it their mission to create a platform for the promotion of the Swiss choreographic arts in a context that facilitates the encounter between dance professionals, the audience and both national and international programmers. Co-organised by Reso – Dance Network Switzerland since 2006, the event takes place every two years in a different Swiss city. Unique in Switzerland, it represents an exceptional opportunity to discover remarkable dance pieces from across the country that have been created in the two years prior to each new edition. Geneva, Basel, Bern, Lausanne, Lugano, Lucerne, Zurich: Swiss Dance Days has taken place in many of Switzerland’s largest cities as well as in its three principal linguistic regions. After the great success of the last edition in Geneva in 2017, professionals and dance enthusiasts alike are ready to head to another Romandy city for the highly anticipated 10th edition. A leading city for performing arts with an extremely active and diverse choreographic scene, Lausanne will give its all for dance from the 6th to the 9th of February for Swiss Dance Days 2019.
