ZÜRICH, TANZT 2018
Time & Location
About the Event
Zwingli is enthroned above the crowd: the herald as the conductor of an orchestra of more than a hundred people, mixed in an unusual way. He rises to work with musical beginnings from his time; however, Zwingli, the visionary, steers the baton with surprising turns into the living now. The instrumentation changes, the voices are redistributed, an unfamiliar dynamic comes over the orchestra - under a hundredfold use of the body: the opening show of ZÜRICH TANZT, in manifesto of mobility and liberation through dance, combines in the ceremony with the 500-year Anniversary of the Zurich Reformation.
