From 15 August 2024 - Zürcher Theater Spektakel

Aug 15, 2024 - Sep 1, 2024

Founded in 1980 as an international gathering of independent theatres, Zurich's Theater Spektakel has very soon developed into a cultural event with international appeal.

The Zürcher Theater Spektakel is today one of the most important European festivals for contemporary forms of the performing arts. A consistent, artistically high quality programming, the unique atmosphere and an open-minded, interested audience in large numbers are the basis of the success story and have made the Zürcher Theater Spektakel a sought-after venue for renowned and emerging theatre and dance groups from all over the world for more than 30 years.

There is a festival this year as well. Is it a Zürcher Theater Spektakel? If you take it literally, rather not: there are hardly any spectacles, little theatre, but a lot in Zurich. In any case, there are many good reasons to come together - albeit differently - to experience international art. We sometimes even suspect that it could be one of the most interesting editions of the Zürcher Theater Spektakel. One thing is certain: it will be smaller and different, but in any case extraordinary.

The Theater Spektakel is easily reachable on foot or by bus 161 & 165 from the centrally located Hotel Alexander Zurich.
