Partnership with research project DisAbility on Stage

This cooperation brings together a team with members from national universities, art schools, dance and theatre companies and theatre and dance festivals by including the three major Swiss language regions. The focus of the project is to reflect body concepts on stage during an education period, to reflect body concepts in the art practice and to reflect body concepts in the theatre scientific discourse.

We don't perform OKKUPATION! anymore!


With the successful implementation of the International Theatre Festival OKKUPATION! 2013  a long-standing und exemplary era of work came to his end: Theater HORA decided to not longer perform the festival because of the increased demands and the scarce human and financial resources. The decision was not easy but necessary because of a needed re-organisation of the theatre. HORA will stand up to find new operators for the established and respected festival.
