2017

Edition 2017

In the run-up to this celebration of contemporary dance, which is held every two years in a different Swiss city, a jury comprising five leading figures from the world of dance has watched more than 140 productions over the last 12 months. The winning entries will be presented at 12 venues across Geneva, which have joined forces especially for the occasion through the creation of an association and a small team.


In doing so, they, alongside Reso – Dance Network Switzerland, provide a tangible demonstration of their commitment to the art of choreography and dance in Switzerland. The Swiss Dance Days, which are also open to the public, are aimed at professionals ­– journalists, festival directors, programmers – from both Switzerland and abroad.

 

Jury 2017: La Ribot, Mona De Weerdt, Joëlle Smadja, Patrick Müller, Claude Ratzé

 

Partners 2017: adc (Association pour la Danse Contemporaine), Festival Antigel, TU – Théâtre de l’Usine, Théâtre du Loup, Théâtre du Grütli, Théâtre du Galpon, Théâtre Forum Meyrin, Service culturel de Vernier and Reso - Dance Network Switzerland.
