Award ceremony on 20 September 2013 at the Théâtre Equilibre in Fribourg

 

The Federal Office of Culture presented the first Swiss Dance Awards on 20 September 2013 at the Théâtre Equilibre in Fribourg, in the presence of Federal Councillor Alain Berset. Martin Schläpfer, Director of the Ballett am Rhein in Düsseldorf, received the Swiss Dance Award, and the Special Dance Award went to Théâtre Sévelin 36. Four entries in the Current Dance Works competition also received prizes. Yen Han and Foofwa d’Imobilité received the Outstanding Female and Male Dancer accolades respectively, while the June Johnson Dance Prize went to Anna Anderegg and the Asphalt Piloten. In addition to the award presentations and film tributes, Yen Han and Foofwa danced short pieces live. Martin Schläpfer presented two works with the Ballett am Rhein: his own choreography “Lontano” from 2009, and “The Old Man and Me” by Hans van Manen, in which Schläpfer danced with Marluccia do Amaral.
