We’re still closed

On 19 March, the Federal Council of Switzerland announced that the current coronavirus rules are to be extended in Switzerland until after Easter.

We are extremely disappointed that the Federal Council of Switzerland has still not given its go ahead for live events to be held. When employing appropriate safety concepts, cultural events are safe; take Spain, for example, where theatres have remained open since last May. For Theater Basel, the ongoing closure is an extreme burden: Not only financially, but increasingly also psychologically on our staff and emotionally on our audiences. The medium to long-term consequences have yet to be seen.
Benedikt von Peter, Artistic Director
In recent months, we have been actively working on the development of the Basel Concept as part of the Basel Cultural Policy Network. This would make pandemic-related restrictions on events proportionate to the risk presented, taking into account real factors such as the venue size and ventilation capacity. Now that the next opening step has been postponed yet again, there would at least be time to prepare it for cultural events along these lines.
Anja Dirks, Artistic Co-Director and Commercial Director of Theatre


Needless to say, our online programme is still available – discover a new contribution each Friday at noon on our website.
