Gregory Stauffer (born in 1980, lives and works in Geneva) has a playful and serious mind. He creates, since 2006, a work which is deliberately located in a transverse and blurred territory between dance and performance with video touches here and there
His work, lined primarly with collaborations with musicians, visual artists and actors, has been performed as much in theaters and festivals as galeries. He was part, with Marius Schaffter, of the Swiss contemporary dance days 2015 with their piece Schaffter and Stauffer, as well as at the Something Raw festival 2015 in Amsterdam. He performed the serial creation 2/3 in collaboration with Bastien Gachet at the Swiss contemporary dance days in January 2013, at the Théâtre de l’Usine in 2011, at the Festival Les Urbaines in 2012, at the Festival Far° 2013 and at the contemporary art centre of Yverdon in 2014. He has participated, among other things, in the Biennale for Contemporary Art 2013 in Athens and to the Swiss Performance Award in 2012. His latest creation, Walking, created in 2015 at the TU, Théâtre de l’Usine, in Geneva, has been performed at the FAR festival in Nyon and at the CCS in Paris.
He is part of the international artists collective Authentic Boys with which he has performed Happyland, a video installation at the Bâtiment d’art Contemporain in 2014, as well as the video Rehearsing Revolution at the FAR festival for performing arts in Nyon in 2014.
