Festival 2020

08.05.2020 | We have seen it coming, but hope has let us believe that it would still be possible. Since the press conference of the Federal Council on 29 April we are faced with the sad certainty: Major events with more than 1000 visitors are prohibited until the end of August 2020. Therefore, the Zürcher Theater Spektakel cannot take place the way we know and love it this year. 

Nevertheless: There will be a festival during the same period but in a different form. In the city, on computers or in discourses. With confidence and enthusiasm, we are busy preparing a version for the Theater Spektakel 2020 and discover new things while doing so. 

The Theater Spektakel has always been a platform for voices, viewpoints and stories from other parts of the world enabling us to put our reality into perspective and to practise solidarity across borders. Art, encounter, reflection and joy. Those will also the be the key elements of the 2020 edition. Let yourself be surprised!

We are looking forward to you taking part this August. Our website and newsletters will inform you on what, how and where. Stay healthy!
