Festival Description

Tanzhaus Zurich hosts and co-producers of the International Dance Festival “Zurich moves!” which is presented in collaboration with Neugass cinema AG cinema and the Kunstverein Laundry Zurich. The participating artists in their work express the facades behind the human masquerade and take on the question of identity. In the context of the cultural, national and existential nature incurred — the productions point to a wide variety of ways that relate to I-be.

“Zurich moves!” features live performances and dance films, which combine personal identity as related to the artistic means of contemporary dance and the medium of film. In the framework of the Festival, the invited artists engage in workshops, training and site specific performances.
