The Final Selection is Complete!
Twelve Companies Invited to the Swiss Dance Days from February 3 to 7, 2021
The Swiss Dance Days will showcase high-class Swiss dance creations of the past two years for the eleventh time – over a condensed period of five days. Finally, the selection of companies has been made. We look forward to welcoming dynamic, humorous and compelling physical studies as well as works exploring questions of sexual identity and gender. The programme is also notable for several autobiographical works full of joyful playing and the courage to question virtuosity. Finally, we are pleased to have several newcomers among the selection.
