It is now almost three years since the first edition at Südpol Kriens in June 2019 and, after two postponements, we are delighted to present the long-awaited second edition – twice! This year’s festival is to be held at Dampfzentrale Bern from 17 to 19 June 2022.
The kulturerbe, tanz! project aims to utilise the national platform to increase the visibility and vitality of the cultural heritage of dance. The focus is on the communication of historical dance knowledge by professional dancers and the cultural participation of non-professional dancers in the artistic stage dance. The festival is held annually in a different Swiss city: 2019 Lucerne, 2022 Visp and Bern, 2023 Délemont. The dance groups are selected by a jury of experts from throughout Switzerland.
