Young Dance represents dance as a discipline in all its imaginable forms: and the innovative Zug Dance Festival is now back again, despite the still difficult corona situation. But it is precisely for this reason that the 2021 edition will be more mobile, flexible and more virtual than usual.
The multi-day ‘Zuger Tanzfestival’, which takes place between 26 September and 2 October, will visit schoolyards, gyms, find its way into classrooms digitally and persuade interested young people to go out into nature. The nine national and international productions, which take place over several days, are explicitly tailored to a young audience between the age of 3 and 20, and have a participatory character, i.e. children and young people can do more than just watch.
All events are without a Covid certificate requirement
The aim and purpose of this special edition of Young Dance is to be able to comply with the applicable protection concepts at all times. The events will therefore not take place in theatre halls – and there is thereby no certificate requirement anywhere else . Cultural mediation is a focus of Young Dance – especially in times like these: Young people should be able to have access to culture, personal expression and creative storytelling, even during the pandemic.
Over 1500 young people will take part in the events. The pink flyer placed under www.youngdance.ch provides information about the public events. The first of them will take place on 26 September on the Zugerberg – the "Dancewalk Nature & Culture", a movement spectacle that – like the other events – has a lot of surprising things in store.
