Focus on Young Choreographers

EMERGENTIA is a brand-new festival in Geneva, dedicated to up-and-coming dance artists. It will take place from 3 to 13 April in three different venues: L’Abri, ADC – Association pour la danse contemporaine and TU – Théâtre de l’Usine.

The EMERGENTIA festival is the fruit of a collaboration between L’Abri, the ADC and the TU. It was born out of a common desire to support contemporary and emerging choreographic creations and the will to build an open, plentiful and generous discovery-platform.
