Pausing of NOTHING LEFT - Covid 19

Dear partners, supporters and dear audience

Due to the current situation we were unfortunately forced to stop our rehearsals of Nothing Left.

The creation is not premiering on 17.04.2020 (Theater Rotterdam) and 25.04.2020 (Kaserne Basel) as planned. Also the scheduled tour within Steps Festival is unfortunately not talking place. We are trying hard to work out the continuation of the rehearsals to a later point. The premiere at Kaserne Basel is already in process of planning.

We are going to inform you via our website, Facebook or Instagram as soon as the conrecte dates are out.

We wish all of you health and a lot of confidence and send our solidary greetings to our colleagues from all over,

Compagnie Tabea Martin

New production!

‹Forever› is a new dance production for children and adults from 8 years of age

Premiere: March 21, 2019

Kaserne Basel

How do children think about life and death – finiteness and immortality? What fantasies do they have about life after death? Have they ever been confronted with death? Is it even allowed to talk to children about these topics or is it still a taboo subject?

Through interviews, games and workshops with children from age 8 to 12 we will explore the children’s visions and fantasies and then transform them into movement with five professional dancers.

‹Forever› will bring eternal life on stage - a world that gives new life to the acient gods and creatures through the imaginations and ideas of the children. What if we lived forever?

A visual, joyful, sensitive and moving journey through the world of death and the imagery of the children begins. 


Swiss Dance Days 2019

‹This is my last dance› has been selected for the Swiss Dance Days 2019! The creation is one of 15 dance pieces out of 150 creations, that has been chosen by the jury and will be presented at the Swiss Dance Days, taking place on the 6 - 9 February in Lausanne.

More Information about the Swiss Dance Days: www.swissdancedays.ch

‹For the existential darkness and loneliness the choreographers find a beguiling picture. They dance on a shiny black, highly reflective dance floor. As a result, they are never alone. Like in a dance of the death-painting, the characters are pursued by their own reflection and fate. In addition to this symbolic power, this mirrored floor is also pure aesthetic pleasure. He lends weightlessness to this last dance.› 

Matthias Balzer, bz Basel 02.02.2018

‹Martin and Bertozzi have choreographed a touching, very personal dance evening. Hopefully the title can not be taken at face value.›
Dominique Spirgi, TagesWoche Basel, 02.02.2018

‹(...) the dance (is) powerful, gripping, meaningful, as we know it from Tabea Martin, and with these little additions of subtle humor›
Maya Künzler, Radio SRF2 02.02.2018

New support agreement

Compagnie Tabea Martin will be funded from 2018-2020 by a cooperative support agreement between cantons Basel-Stadt, Basel Landschaft and Pro Helvetia-Swiss Arts Council.

According to the terms of the support agreements, the municipalities and cantons grant financial assistance to the companies for their artistic creation, operations and other activities at local, regional and national level, while Pro Helvetia’s contribution goes towards international tours. The support agreement provides the companies with greater planning security and also more flexibility, as it enables them to take on short-term commitments and projects without having to re-apply for support each time. This strengthens their negotiating position on the international market. The financial backing also gives them more leeway to develop new productions and formats. With the conclusion of a support agreement, the sponsoring parties for their part signal their trust in the artistic and organisational qualities of the dance or theatre company concerned.

Tabea Martin receives the three-year-grant for dance and theatre 2017-2019 from the cantons of Basel-City and Basel-Landschaft

‹Tabea Martin has convinced the committee through her clear artistic vision, the continuity and the high niveau of her artistic work as through her distinct network and great commitment for a strong and dynamic contemporary dance scene in the region of Basel.›

The three-year-grant aims to support the artistic and operational qualitative development of a company and enables a better network and visibility encouraged by a longterm planning security and a continuity in diffusion work and touring.


Tabea Martin receives culture award for dance

In May 2016 Tabea Martin was honored by the government of Canton Basel-Landschaft with the culture award for dance. 

‹The government of Canton Basel-Landschaft is honoring choreographer Tabea Martin (*1978) from Oberwil with the culture award for dance 2016. Tabea Martin has achieved a remarkable international career. She has been working for the independent scene as well as for municipal theaters. Her projects are characterized by professionality and inspire an international audience through humour, intelligence and great choreographical skills. For these reasons she is one of the most successful swiss choreographers.›
