Swiss Performing Arts Awards launching in 2021


As announced in the Culture Dispatch 2021–2024, from 2021 the Theatre Awards, including the Kleinkunstpreis, will be merged with the Dance Awards and presented annually under the umbrella of the Swiss Performing Arts Awards at a joint event in autumn.


The aim of this merger is to better reflect the permeability of the boundaries between dance, theatre, the various forms that make up “Kleinkunst”, and other facets of the performing arts such as performance, contemporary circus, puppet theatre and street arts, and increase the visibility of the full range of performing arts. It will also allow the Hans Reinhart Ring, which was instituted in 1957 by the Swiss Society for the Dramatic Arts (SGTK), to be presented once again in all areas of the performing arts.
