Guiding principles

ADC’s aim is to promote contemporary dance and for it to be a strong contributor to the cultural scene in Geneva. It is a member of the Passeport danse, which links the dance programs of 8 structures in Geneva and in the surroundings of the city, in France.

Building description

The ADC is provisionally located at la Salle des Eaux Vives in Geneva, equiped with a moving technical system. The audience capacity is 150 people, the stage is 11 m deep and 15 m wide. The ADC manages 3 studios dedicated to creative research at la Maison des arts du Grütli, Geneva.

History

The ADC was first located in the Salle Patino until 1997. In 1998, it took on a nomadic existence presenting works in a range of different theatres and spaces, most especially in the Théâtre du Grütli, the Alhambra, the Théâtre du Loup, and the BFM.
  That same year, ADC, along with Geneva-based choreographers, established a group and set about working towards creating a dancehouse for the city. Since 2004 ADC has been provisionally located in the Salle communale des Eaux-Vives. The project of a dancehouse was rejected by the Lancy commune in 2006. Undeterred ADC has continued the process, working on the development of a Dance Pavillion. In 2013 an architect was appointed by the City of Geneva by open competition. It is hoped that Pavillon de la danse will be fully operational by 2018.
