In the summer of 2017, the contemporary ballet piece "Besessen" was performed for the first time. The planning for the event began over a year before when two friends began talking about a project together where one choreographs and the other writes the music. During the next five months, two International School Basel Alumni, Simon V. ('16) and Paul S. ('17), came together to compose the music and on 30 June 2017, "Besessen" celebrated its official opening night.
