Every two years the Migros Culture Percentage stages the biggest festival of contemporary dance throughout Switzerland. Since 1988, national and international dance companies have toured the entire country for a three-week period. With 80 performances in 32 towns and villages, the festival attracts a total audience of 30,000 across every region of Switzerland.
Teaching the art of dance
Away from the stage, the Migros Culture Percentage organises performances and dance workshops for around 3,000 school students. Swiss dance professionals are also among those to benefit: during the festival, the visiting choreographers and dancers share their knowledge and skills in masterclasses.
