ZURICH The 12th Swiss Dance Days will take place in Zurich from February 28 to March 3, 2024; the programme has been presented today by Reso Dance Network Switzerland, which is responsible for the national coordination, and its Patners.

Being born to promote a selection of the most interesting Swiss dance works and artists to professionals from all over the world, the Swiss Dance Days are also an opportunity for the regional audience to discover an outstanding and diverse selection of recently developed dance pieces, as Boris Brüderlin, Head of Reso, declared today during the press conference.

Among 218 productions viewed, the jury (Joanna Lesnierowska, curator & visual dramaturg, Grisons; Laurence Perez, curator, Marseille/Lausanne/Zürich; Simone Truong, choreographer, Zürich; Laurence Wagner, curator & director Festival Belluard Bollwerk, Fribourg; Emanuel Rosenberg, choreographer & festival director, Ticino) has chosen 15 pieces reflecting the current diversity of contemporary Swiss creativity in dance: Élie Autin / Cie Les Bacchantes, Alexandra Bachzetsis, Maud Blandel / ILKA, Géraldine Chollet / Cie Rahu LaMo, The Field / Rafał Pierzyński, Isabel Lewis, Delgado Fuchs, Mélissa Guex, Trajal Harrell with Schauspielhaus Zürich Dance Ensemble, ZOO / Thomas Hauert, Jeremy Nedd & Impilo Mapantsula, Pierre Piton, Alessandro Schiattarella, Cindy Van Acker, Teresa Vittucci, Annina Machaz & Theater HORA, Rebecca Weingartner.

For the first time at the Swiss Dance Days, the audience will be able to see works created after the pandemic – this global, cross-generational experience. What is the world after Covid? What do we do to heal? What are the ways out? These questions are present in the selected pieces, which also shows diversity of age, gender, bodies and abilities.
