ABOUT CHOREOGRAPHERS NIGHT
The CHOREOGRAPHERS NIGHT is a dance event held in Zurich, Switzerland giving Swiss Choreographers and Dancers a platform where they come together to show their creativity and share their passion for dance. A showcase where choreographers can have free artistic expression without the constraints of an artist, a director or a script.
Instead of having dance crews be the center of attention it's the choreographers and their individual dancers. It’s not about who does it best but about sharing the love and passion for dance and supporting each other within our small but very talented Swiss dance community.
Different choreographers are chosen in advance and asked to choreograph and create a piece with dancers of their choice which they will present at the showcase of the CHOREOGRAPHERS NIGHT. There’s neither a price to win nor judges to judge but concerning the shows there is no limit of creativity for the choreographers nor the dancers.
Eversince the first edition lauched in 2016 the event has been reorganised every year. The CHOREOGRAPHERS NIGHT is a highly appreciated platform of the Swiss dance community bringing together over 80 Swiss and international dancers creating a space of love for dance, passion and support.
WHY DO WE DO WHAT WE DO?
We want to create a safe space for dancers & choreographers to show their craft and creativity, a platform that supports the importance of dance in our society which is built on mutual support within the swiss dance community.
WHAT DO WE DO?
We hold an event, a showcase with twelve shows where every choreographer has absolut artistic freedom. They choose their dancers, music, art, costumes all by themselves. Without any judgement - for the sake of creative expression - there will be no price to win.
HOW DO WE DO IT?
We create a nonjudgemental environment which brings the swiss dance community together but also invites people with interest in dance from different backgrounds to have an insight in our talented, hard-working artistry.
