Dear all

We believed until the last moment! But, due to the current situation, we decided with greatest regrets to cancel the Swiss Performance Art Award 2020.

Above all, we thank the artists for all their energy, time and love they put into the preparation of the performances.

Also, we would like to thank all the partners and collaborators working on this years Swiss Performance Art Award. And we hope that the public will be with us next year in St. Gallen.

Take care.
