PARTOUT is a project of d PANCH – Performance Art Network CH and the closing project of PANCH EUROVISION. PANCH is a network of young artists based in Basel that has the goal of reinforcing and promoting performance art in Switzerland on the public, artistic and conceptual levels.
With the support of Pro Helvetia (2018–2020), the d PANCH EUROVISION project planned and carried out seven trips in Europe to talk with performance artists about their networks.
PARTOUT will bring some of the performance actors from the EUROVISION project together with selected Swiss artists in Lausanne and Basel. This will be complemented with the LIVE ART WORKSHOP, in which the Kaserne Basel and Arsenic Lausanne, together with the Pro Helvetia coordination bureaus, invite international artists to participate in the Partout Project.
32 performance artists from national, European and international contexts will meet in Switzerland for 12 days of performances, experiments in sharing and discussions. In this way, PANCH seeks to consolidate the performance art network, make worldwide contacts better known in Switzerland and present the diversity of performance art to a wider public.
PARTOUT is a project of PANCH, hosted by the Kaserne Basel and at Arsenic Lausanne, and is supported by:
Swisslos-Fonds Basel-Stadt, Loterie Romande, Pro Helvetia, Fondation Nestlé pour l’Art, Ernst und Olga Gubler-Hablützel Stiftung, Jacqueline Spengler Stiftung and Erna & Curt Burgauer Stiftung
