The site-specific adaptations of the stage piece SPUREN focus on interaction with the audience. Wild, untamed Alpine rituals become an immersive tonal and spatial experience filled with adrenaline and humor. 

Rituals that have been practiced in remote regions and valleys for centuries are still unknown to large sections of the Swiss population. Restaged into unusual settings on the edge between urbanity and nature, SPUREN brings the vibe of archaic Swiss rituals closer to the viewer.

The city walk SPUREN GOES CITY has been commissioned by the festival ZürichTanzt in 2017.
