More than a dance festival
Zurich Tanzt is more than a dance festival as the organisers wish to make a bridge between the performing arts and social issues. At Tanzhaus Zurich, artists will contemplate contemporary social issues through dance on the Contemporary Stage, while the Playground is a space where young and old can experiment with dance in an intimate and interactive setting.
Alternatively, why not try the Venice Bienniale?
