Zurich Tanzt

Zurich will be the home to a city-wide festival of dance in May. Held from 12 to 21 May, Zurich Tanzt assembles some of the finest contemporary dancers in the Swiss city, to display their innovative dance routines and practices.

Zurich Tanzt involves original works as well as an extensive programme of courses that everyone can join in. 2019’s festival attracted over 19,000 people with performances in some 26 venues across the city.

Held since 2013, the programme includes plays, participatory productions, films and site-specific events, as well as workshops and parties.

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.
