This year’s programme welcomes two ensembles for the first time to Dubai with a total of fifteen artists: The Swiss contemporary circus duo E1NZ and the choir Ensemble Corund (pictured).

Swiss Days Dubai 2015 aims to enhance the label “Swissness” with UAE based Swiss companies, which stands for quality, innovation, reliability, luxury and high international reputation.

On Friday, February 6 a stunning performance with two young Swiss artists will be shown at the Madinat Theatre. In their creation Nischenprojekt, E1NZ will take the audience on a voyage to an eccentric world where everyday objects are imaginatively manipulated. “

Nischenprojekt, loosely translated as ‘Niche Project’, is a non-verbal creative mix of circus, dance, theater and music.

On Saturday, the professional choir, Ensemble Corund has its debut in the Middle East. The choir consists of nine professional singers, a pianist and its director, Steven Smith.

Established in 1993, the Ensemble Corund is one of Switzerland’s oldest professional choirs. They specialise in renaissance, baroque and modern contemporary music. They take their name from the corundum, a type of sapphire, musically inspired by its colour, brilliance, purity, transparency, delicacy, durability, density, resistance, and crystalline precision.

On each evening the doors open at 7.30pm and the shows start at 8.30pm.
