Zurcher Theater Spektakel
Launched in 1980, this is one of Europe's most important festivals. With steady financing by Zuercher Kantonalbank (a public sector banking institution) this festival has consistently presented a program of works by artists and companies from within and outside of Europe. During the festival's run, open cafes, restaurants and an outdoor theater are set up in a lakeside park in Zurich in a effort to create an environment that gives the citizens close access to the performing arts. The festival's director is Sandro Lunin.
The festival awards talented artists each time with its ZKB Patronage Prize and ZKB Acknowledgement Prize. The two awards include monetary prizes of 30,000 Swiss francs (approx. USD32,000) and 5,000 Swiss francs (approx. USD5,400) respectively to support future activities as a way of encouraging long-term cultural contribution. Past winners include Stefan Pucher, 400asa, Marco Berrettini, Sarah Michelson, Living Dance Studio, Young Jean Lee, Faifai and others.
