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. 

Through her book «Darkness», Nina Edwards has written a cultural-historical account of darkness, thereby providing the inspiration for this year’s festival theme. In her keynote, she will show how the idea of darkness permeates art, literature, religion and aspects of our everyday language. To kick off Tanz in Bern, her input relates to the main thematic arc of the following two and a half weeks.
