TAKING STOCK OF THE 2018 FESTIVAL

06.05.2018

On the 5th of May 2018, the 16th edition of the Migros Culture Percentage Dance Festival Steps, with performances in Bern, Chur, La Tour-de-Trême, Neuchâtel and Zurich, came to an end. With the theme "courage", this 30th-anniversary edition of Steps thrilled a wide audience. The festival's 25 days were characterised by countless standing ovations and staggeringly high numbers of visitors. In total, 25 of the 83 performances were sold out and the festival was visited by 30,000 spectators. Steps thanks all the artists and its 60 partners, as well as the audience, for making the 2018 edition one of the most successful in the 30-year history of Steps.

Barrier-free accessibility is important to us. In order to enable us to welcome people with impairments to as many Steps events as possible, we and the Culture Inclusive office at Pro Infirmis have jointly developed a package of measures.
