Davide-Christelle Sanvee CH

Aime ton pays

Performance

Due to works in the courtyard of the Hôtel de Ville, the artist and the Festival must unfortunately postpone this creation to the 2023 edition.

She knows how to awaken the geniuses of a place, how to flush them out and tame them. Choreographing them is her job. Since her arrival in Geneva, “this city that adopted me as best it could”, David-Christelle Sanvee has observed, detailed and performed the social and political relationships that transpire from the walls that welcome her. It is through their architecture that she assesses their capacity for integration. At the Kunsthaus in Aarau, her work Le ich dans nicht won her the Swiss Performance Prize in 2019 for her ability to “address relevant social issues in a subtle way, such as the mechanisms of exclusion experienced in one’s own body”. Today, she has chosen the heart of Geneva’s City Hall: Cour Saint-Pierre. Its eight empty arcades, its wide staircases designed for illustrious horsemen, its coat of arms Aime ton Pays come alive in droll equestrian choreography. The entrance of the performer draped as the Republic and wearing the bastions of Protestant Rome is only the beginning of a series of transformations that displace the mythologies of identity. With the horse as her symbol and identity as her battle, Sanvee moves us with humour and finesse.
