The professionals section normally contains information about your visit to Tanz im August. Instead of the international stage programme cancelled in May, the festival is now presenting a special edition from 21–30 August 2020 with online events and performances in public space that bring together a wide range of voices from the international contemporary dance world.

We would like to draw your attention to our digital conference “How to Be Together? Conversations on International Exchange and Collaboration in the Performing Arts”, organised together with Zürcher Theater Spektakel. The three-day programme aims to initiate a trans-continental dialogue between artists, organisers and cultural policy-makers, and to and link people who are active in different geographical, cultural, political and professional areas.

Magazin im August

The print edition of the Magazin im August will be available for free in the Bibliothek im August (WAU | HAU2) from 21 August onwards. Download the digital version here.
