They are Quito Tembe of Iodine productions, and Kinani Dance Platform Maputo; Qudus Onikeku of QDanceCentre and DanceGathering Lagos; Jay Pather of the Institute for Creative Arts Cape Town.

From 6 to 9 February 2019 in Lausanne, the 10th Swiss Dance Days will showcase the winning performances selected by the jury from over 150 entries. The programme offers a snapshot of the trends that are currently inspiring Swiss choreographers and dancers.

Founded in 1996, Swiss Dance Days was modelled after the Rencontres chorégraphiques de Seine-Saint-Denis in Paris, a pioneering festival that’s been dedicated to contemporary choreographic creation since 1969.More Info here.
