The festival Tanz in Bern is cancelled!

Dampfzentrale and all theatres in the canton of Bern will be shut down until the 23rd of November. This includes the cancellation of all performances.

We were looking forward to our yearly ray of light and to getting together with you, our audience. Until the last possible moment we were hoping that Tanz in Bern could happen. «Dear Darkness» caught up with us on the evening before the opening. 

Further information will follow at a later stage. 

Caution, not a spoiler alert! Unique insights from experts get you in the mood for the performances. The speakers are in the same boat as you: They haven’t seen the work either. So there’s no risk of it being spoiled before it’s already begun. But they do know more about the evening’s topic. And this knowledge enables a special introduction to the evening together. Maybe not a must but certainly a very helpful and nice thing to do.
