On March 30, 2020 in the frame of "Zürich Moves!", The Field would have premiered The Best and the Worst of Us, an iconic piece by Simone Aughterlony at Tanzhaus Zürich with additional shows at Südpol Luzern. Unfortunately due to the restrictions imposed associated with the Covid-19 crisis, the show will have to be postponed to a later date. Until then, we find comfort in sharing with you our "Quarantine version" as a symbolic gesture to better days and in appreciation of Simone's work and the support of our collaborative partners. Thank you to Tanzhaus Zürich, Zürich Moves! Südpol Luzern and all our sponsors! We are looking forward to sharing the live version with our audience as soon as possible!
Zurich has a new pool of dance makers: The Field. We are more than can be expressed with a single term. Most likely, we are a hybrid.
The Field builds up an open structure and cultivates different kinds of collaborations in dance and performance. In the space between various artistic disciplines and in close relationship with our surroundings and society at large, we want to practice, investigate, enjoy, reflect, exchange and perform.
From these creative processes, interventions and stage pieces emerge that go far beyond what we generally understand by dance.
The Field is supported by: BNP Paribas Swiss Foundation, Migros-Kulturprozent, Landis & Gyr Stiftung, Ernst Göhner Stiftung and Fondation Nestlé pour l'Art.
