On Place Charles-Sturm in Geneva, between historic buildings and an avenue of trees, the Pavillon de la danse stretches like an accordion stretched out just enough to start a tune. Overlooking the Bourg-de-Four and the Villereuse district, it was completed at the end of 2020 and is now awaiting the lifting of health restrictions to put contemporary dance in the spotlight.
“It’s very strange and frustrating to move into a theater when all the others are closed,” notes Anne Davier, director of the Association for Contemporary Dance, who moved there in mid-March. But we have been working on the project for such a place for twenty years, so it is the culmination of a long period: we are waiting to be able to welcome the public with all the more excitement. ”
