Questioning methods of production and inhabitation of institutional spaces, to CAMP invites 17 artists from different bodies related practices to bring performative proposals at the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève and relate them to the specificities of the space. Spread on three floors of the Centre, the group will set up a base-camp as a platform where they live, cook, share and influence each other.
The group is composed of 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. 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.
