Zürcher Theater Spektakel

Swiss Re is proud to be one of the three key sponsors of the Zürcher Theater Spektakel since 1994.

The Zürcher Theater Spektakel, founded in 1980, is a lake-side festival venue in Zurich, which ranks among the most important European festivals for contemporary performing art. In late August, the festival transforms the Landiwiese into a cultural Mecca for 18 days.

Swiss Re partnered with Theater Spektakel in recent years to help the event go carbon neutral. Now, we are working with Zürcher Kantonalbank to assist the Spektakel in achieving its next and equally important milestone.

"Inklusiv" is a project to ensure that Theater Spektakel shows are just as accessible to viewers with disabilities, at the content level as well as physically. The effort to remove barriers extends further to include live audio podcasts and sign language translations for select productions. This sends an important message, represents a conscious contribution and is another good reason why Swiss Re is proud to be supporting the festival.
