to CAMP - one week of living, working and performing
Fluxum Foundation and Flux Laboratory, in coproduction with the Centre d'Art Contemporain Genève are happy to present the project: to CAMP - One week of living, working and performing from 7th to 13rd 2018.
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. 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.
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.

Anti Fascist Ballet School – workshop
By Magdalena Chowaniec
Open to everyone, reservation required till may 7th email@example.com
Hierarchy, control over one’s body, synchronization – these associations belong to the world of ballet, of the military, of today’s society. In the Anti-Fascist Ballet School, these categories will be exorcised, rather than reproduced. The Anti-Fascist Ballet School takes ballet and somatic work with the body as a starting point to reveal roles in the preservation of ideologies and power relations of the present. This project goes back to the roots of ballet, examines its potential for empowerment, and rediscovers the activist body. Anti-Fascist Ballet School is an offer open to everyone, to collectively uncover unconscious physical states of being, to re-discover the sense of touch and physical trust and to gain the courage to face the unknown today.
The public is invited to participate in the workshop at Flux Laboratory, open for the occasion on the public space.
