Watch & Talk

Festival residency
  • Th 08 → Su 18.08.24

The Watch & Talk residency aims to create the conditions for genuine artistic effervescence. Accompanied by a specialist in the performing arts, six emerging artists from Switzerland and abroad are invited to immerse themselves in the works presented during the festival and to reflect on their own practice. These discussions, which resonate with the programme, are the breeding ground for dynamic artistic research, free from any constraints of production or outcome. Watch & Talk thus gives rise to an ephemeral collective of young artists who encourage exchanges and links while engaging in cross-disciplinary dialogue.

In 2024, the residency will be accompanied by performer, choreographer, and teacher Gregory Stauffer (ch).

The artists :
Oscar M. Damianaki (ch/gr)
Lou Golaz (ch)
Annatina Huwiler (ch)
Aïda Jamal (ma)
Ametonyo Silva (br)
Doan Thanh Toan (vn)
