Guiding principles

ADC (Association pour la Danse Contemporaine) aims to promote contemporary dance and for it to be a strong contributor to the cultural scene in Geneva. It is a member of the Passedanse, which links the dance programs of 8 structures in Geneva and in the surroundings of the city, in France.

History

Initiated in 1986, 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.

Building and facilities

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.

ADC will relocate into a new Pavillion in 2020.
