Swiss Dance Days 2022 – Save the Date
In 2021 the Swiss Dance Days had to be cancelled due to the Covid pandemic. We are all the more pleased to announce that the next Swiss Dance Days will take place from February 2 to 6, 2022, once again in Basel. This international platform of Swiss dance will be organized by the following partners: junges theater basel, Kaserne Basel, ROXY Birsfelden, Neues Theater Dornach, Theater Basel, Vorstadttheater Basel and Reso –Dance Network Switzerland.
Among approximately 150 pieces premiered since 2019, the jury has selected twelve remarkable Swiss dance productions. We look forward to dynamic, humorous and powerful physical studies and autobiographical works full of performative joy and the courage to question virtuosity. A special focus is on several powerful works from the younger generation of Swiss choreographers. Discover the jury’s program now!
Professional attendees and programmers may register for the Swiss Dance Days from November 2021 onwards, benefitting from reduced admission and accommodation at our partner hotel Stücki, which we are able to offer thanks to the Swiss cultural foundation Pro Helvetia.
