Festival Description

Stromereien performance festival adds a new dimension to the cultural life of Zürich by giving performance art an exclusive space. Local and international artists coming from different backgrounds such as visual arts, dance and theatre choose a site and present or adapt a performance work exclusively for stromereien (performances are site specific). The location of the event is the shore of the river Limmat and various sites in and around Tanzhaus Wasserwerk Zürich (centre for contemporary dance Zürich). The program consists of internationally renowned invited performance artists and young, local artists who proposed their project to the selection committee. (Check the website for details about application procedures and deadline).
