Don’t Forget to Touch Me est un livre d’artiste conçu par Anne Sylvie Henchoz édité par les éditions TSAR, Vevey et désigné par Marietta Eugster. Il réunit une collection d’invitations et de scénarios pour de futures performances.

La performance est un ensemble de pièces chorégraphiées dans lesquelles les danseurs et musiciens qui les concrétisent utilisent les corps des uns et des autres pour produire des percussions rythmées.

Le paysage mélodique est constitué de sonorités sourdes, dures, parfois douces, produites par la chair et les os.

La pratique polymorphe d’Anne Sylvie Henchoz inclue actions construites, improvisées et narration. Ces éléments se déploient dans des situations conçues comme des cérémonies qui inventent des façons atypiques d’entrer en relation, énoncées par un vocabulaire poétique et chorégraphique.

Performeuses : Anne Briset, Zoé Cornélius, Claire Dessimoz, Zoé Gaillard, Jeanne Laroutourou, Cathy Sarr


DaVaD MiRoRiM

Issus de différentes scènes indépendantes, les membres de DaVaD MiRoRiM (David Ashby, Julien Baillod, Steven Doutaz, Brynjar Thorsson) assument une aire de repos relatif au-delà des genres et des tendances et ne se réclament d’aucun bord. Un chantier en chantier en perpétuelle déconstruction. Son rock, hypnotisme et chaos emplissent un espace sonore plastique et sculptural.


The first exhibition, imagined by the new team at CAN, should be seen as a period of acclimation. A time that allows us to become familiar with our new colleagues and slowly make our marks. Accompanied by a group of artists and other sympathetic collaborators, we are working together towards a symbolic reconstruction of CAN. This exhibition extends over the three months of the autumn season, 2018, and is punctuated by three intermediate events; evenings dedicated to contemporary performances. From an initial situation where the roles of the exhibition spaces have been redistributed (a stock, a workshop and a living-room are installed) to a classic exhibition at the end, different states of the exhibition will follow one another. On display from the first day we opened to the public, the evolutionary dimension of the project Sympathie (which will still go through uncertain phases) will gain its rhythm through the performance programs. This time-scale will work as a distinct marker that the spectators can interpret as an invitation to come (re)discover the exhibition. Our intention is to put in place a favourable context in which human affinities and artistic influences can come to light, in a type of chain reaction. An exhibition setup is generally a time of effervescence when the art centre comes alive and where powerful exchanges are created between the participants. But this moment is generally not seen or felt by the public. With Sympathie we are attempting to reverse this tendency by stretching out this moment, by making it more accessible and by reducing the conventional experience of an exhibition to just one night, the Opening/Closing event on December 14th, 2018.
