The Swiss Dance Days showcase high-class Swiss dance creations selected from 146 dance pieces created during the past two years. Here is an overview of the graduates of the Bachelor in Contemporary Dance to discover from February 3 to 7, 2021 in Basel!
Organized by Reso - Swiss Dance Network, in collaboration with the theaters of the Basel region, this eleventh edition will allow the selected companies to present their works to a regional, national and international audience, as well as to programmers from Switzerland and abroad during the "Salons d'artistes".
At the beginning of October, the jury unveiled its final selection, consisting of twelve pieces providing an overview of Swiss choreographic creation over the past two years. Whether as choreographers or as performers, La Manufacture is delighted to find several graduates of the Bachelor of Contemporary Dance program among the selected ones.
The Moost Company will present Les promesses de l'incertitude, directed and performed by Marc Oosterhoff (graduate in 2017), with the complicit gaze and support of Pauline Castelli (Master Theatre graduate in 2018) in dramaturgy.
We will also find the Cie PP, a duo formed by Romane Peytavin and Pierre Piton (graduates in 2017), with the piece Farewell Body, and the Ouinch-Ouinch collective, composed of Marius Barthaux, Simon Crettol, Karine Dahouindji and Nicolas Mayorga Ramirez (graduates in 2018) with their first creation-performance Happy Hype.
Simon Crettol will also perform in Sorry, do the tour. Again! created by Marco Berrettini.
Alex Landa Aguirreche (graduate in 2017) is collaborating with choreographer and jury member Foofwa d'Imobilité, with whom he will perform a duet for this edition's Carte Blanche, entitled Voyage.
