TANZGRUND
Direction: César Vayssié

As part of the 2019 Zürcher Theater Spektakel in Zurich, dancer and choreographer Boris Charmatz tested [terrain], the shifting concept of a neo-institution without walls or roof, an urban green space held by the idea of a human architecture investing its surface, its ground, in short its terrain, more or less vacant and open, aiming to convey through dance the questions which transform our times, but also, the essence of our desire (our need) to dance. César Vayssié recorded the public warm-ups, workshops, performances, improvisations, discussions as well as the dancefloor – all composing this occupation on the Landiwiese along Lake Zurich for three weeks.
