The photographic duo Antonello&Montesi have produced 3D photographs of all the Swiss Dance Awards 2017 winners. The posters will be displayed in the streets, on walls and in theatre foyers at all the venues during the dance festival.
Interviews with all the winners of the most recent edition have been published in four languages on the Swiss Dance Awards website. They can be read, printed out and downloaded in PDF format from www.tanzpreise.ch.
Of the seven projects submitted last autumn for Dance as Cultural Heritage 2018, the Federal Dance Jury has selected five: studies from the dance works of Sigurd Leeder, a homage to Charlotte Bara, a film about the teaching of Noemi Lapzeson, tale(s) of Swiss dance, and the project “Kulturerbe, tanz!”
Since last summer, the Swiss Dance Awards have been on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter under the hashtag #CHDanceAwards. The “Dance it!” app, which now includes last year’s award winners, encourages users to shoot their own short dance films.
The call for submissions for the second season of the Current Dance Works competition (2017–2019), leading to the Swiss Dance Awards in autumn 2019, opens in autumn 2018, as will the next competition for the June Johnson Dance Prize.
As in previous Swiss Dance Award competitions, the Federal Office of Culture also invites submissions during the same period for an award for innovative dance involving young people, in association with the Stanley Thomas Johnson Foundation (STJS). For information and regulations, see Cultural Creativity/Dance.
Since summer 2017 the winners of the Swiss Dance Awards have been on social media. A new promotion for the 2017 winners has already been organised for the 2019 Tanzfest dance festival, which takes place from 3 to 5 May 2019.
