for the mobility of creativity

Xocolat, association for the mobility of creativity, promotes artists, encounters and working dynamics in order to nurture creative endeavours, resonate, and enrich the social weaving.

hostasrtist.network

hostartist.network (HAN) is Xocolat's first innovative project, and it aims to place the association at the service of an international sphere of action. Currently in development and programming for beta stage, in research collaboration with HumanTech institute (Fribourg) and supported by InnoSuisse, this project is the outcome of several years of work and research.

 

Understanding the value of an artist's work and its direct relationship to society HAN provides valuable answers concerning reduction of physical habitats for art, and through evolving languages and formats. Addingly, HAN will transfer a much sought irrigation at the basis of creative processes and stimulate artistic exchange despite current, and possibly long term, geographic restrictions.

 

The platform in development will work as an organic structure to generate creative dynamics. It will connect artist to hosts as intentions (see below) meet solutions. It is perched towards real encounters and experiences. The very definition and responsibility of an artist, and that of being a host, intrinsic.

In preparation for LIMINAL stage, dance and transmedia production

Liminal est une nouvelle création, un projet pour la scène, qui se concrétise à travers les langages de la danse, de la poésie, du masque, de la calligraphie et les technologies immersives visuelles et sonores. 

De quoi on parle?

L’espace liminal et la mise en scène d’un seul instant sont les points de départ du processus de création. Une voix enivrée d’amour cherche un corps pour se matérialiser et résoudre un crime. Le chœur de mouvement, 6 danseurs, est ce corps. Il entraîne le spectateur dans le mouvement d’un couteau qui perce la chair, une force qui pénètre dans la matière. Elle se décompose, les éléments se séparent, l’espace entre eux dévoile le champ du possible. Entrer dans le moment et mouvement de ce crime c’est prendre conscience de la nature transformative de l’homme, de la société et de la matière, un moment de basculement, de révélation.

Xocolat was formed in 2017 on the basis of the involvement of its founding members in the local, national and international cultural and arts scene, and their commitment to activities through previous organizations.

Xocolat’s activities have been supported both regionally and nationally in Switzerland, through artistic and scientific funds, and through the local community where it acts.
