Questioning methods of production and inhabitation of institutional spaces, To CAMP invites 17 artists from different body-related practices to bring performative proposals to the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève and relate them to the specificities of the space. The group will set up a base-camp in the Institution, as a platform to live, cook, share and influence each other.

Over the course of this week, the public is invited to visit this urban camp and discover the possibilities of life and movement presented by the members of this ephemeral community.

Choreographers, dancers and performers, whose work is interdisciplinary and revolves around the notions of space and movement, as well as their relationship to the human body are brought together for the occasion. Their individual approaches and eclectic practices extend from contemporary dance to classical ballet. They choreograph everyday life reflecting on diverse aspects of our society, including culinary art. These artists closely ally their artistic practice to sound and music, in order to provoke an emotional response. They search to create a form of hybrid performance by linking it to other disciplines such as the visual arts. The different participants are also reunited through the themes expressed in their creations, often centered around issues of power, identity, and gender.

Programmed every year, the project thus aims to bring together artistic personalities in a common project, offering them an unique environment for sharing and exchange, and resulting in the construction of a collective space, hosting all these diverse artistic approaches.
