VERTICAL DANCE HUB BASEL /CH
"TANZ DER SEIDENSPINNER"
The Vertical Dance Hub Basel /CH is the first Hub in Switzerland dedicated to research, artistic residencies and workshops in Vertical Dance. It is also the highest in Europe, with its 34m high wall, wich is since June 2022 magnified by a monumental work of the Basel artist Adrian Falkner, forming a unique stage of 500m2. A second 15m high wall is also equipped.
Rebekka Gather from Tempo di Borea initiated the project "Vertical Dance Hub Switzerland Basel/CH" together with Urban Art Agency Switzerland GmbH, directed by Cornelia Kilchherr.
In June 2022 we inaugurated the VDHB with a breathtaking aerial performance for four dancers with live music composed specially for the occasion, on the 500m2 stage of the Vertical Dance Hub Basel /CH, with its 34m hight and coverd windows by SYYDEBÄNDEL, A monumental art piece of the famous basel artist Adrian Falkner
