In addition, she will be allowed to perform at Moods with a project of her choice during the 23/24 season.The Moods-Aïda Alliman Prize is awarded on the basis of the submitted motivation letter and artistic plans - the emerging takes precedence over the completed.

2022
On Sunday, October 16, 2022, an event at the Tanzhaus Zurich was massively disrupted by a group from the radical right-wing camp. The event in question was Drag Story Time - an event for children from the age of three. The format conveys diversity, tolerance and inclusion and thrives on an open discourse about gender identities and role models. We stand in solidarity with Tanzhaus Zürich and welcome the charges filed by Tanzhaus. We stand side by side and condemn politically motivated disruptive actions of any kind. The fact that an event for families of all things was attacked appalls us even more. Together with our partners and friends from the cultural scene of Zurich, we hereby set a sign against hate, exclusion and right-wing propaganda. These have no place in our society, and we will not stop defending and communicating our values. We are convinced that art and culture can contribute to making this world a better place - this is what we stand up for together every day with our work.
We look forward to celebrating our 30th anniversary with you. From October 21 to 23, 2022, a colorful program awaits you here at Moods, LaSalle and Schiffbau Foyer with international stars and newcomers, established and younger representatives of the Swiss music scene, concerts with influences from Africa and the Balkans, a recumbent and a children's concert, a workshop together with Helvetiarockt and a musical walk through Kreis 5. With: Julie Campiche Solo feat. Claire Huguenin - Acid Amazonians x Taimashoe - Claudia Masika - Neue Grafik Ensemble - Afterparty with Rizzoknor & DJ Lexx - Music Production Workshop with Cégiu - Soundwalking - A walkable composition by TRIO - Stacey Kent - District Five - BalkanEkstra Afterparty with The Nozez & Rock Gitano - Children's Concert: Il lung Viadi - Osomo Liege Concert.

ZKB Jazzpreis Festival 2022: The nominated bands
We warmly congratulate Marena Whitcher on winning the Moods-Aïda Alliman Prize 2022. The consistent pursuit of her visions and the constant reflection of her work convinced the jury just as much as her irrepressible creativity and her boundless joy of experimentation beyond all musical genres and rules. A clear idea of how the prize money will be used was another decisive criterion. The prize money should enable her to work freely for a certain period of time. In addition, she will be allowed to perform at Moods with a project of her choice during the 22/23 season.The Moods-Aïda Alliman Prize is awarded on the basis of the submitted motivation letter and artistic plans - the emerging takes precedence over the completed. The continuity of the previous work and the development potential of the musicians* are also important criteria.
