The Field is an artistic collective established in 2019 and has been an artist in residence at Tanzhaus Zürich since its inception. The Field aims to break free from labels and relies on an open structure to cultivate a wide range of collaborations in the field of dance and performance. The Field practices, investigates, experiences, reflects, exchanges, and shapes; navigating the interspace between artistic disciplines and closely intertwined with society. From these creative processes, interventions and stage works emerged which go far beyond what we understand as dance.
The Field has collaborated with Simone Aughterlony, Isabel Lewis and Meg Stuart. Members of the collective also design their own individual pieces and formats (e.g., I Object, We Object, Post-Show Talk, To Those Who Wait, Question Kiosk, Take Your Body for a Walk, Textual Fantasy, Dance Delivery, Fake Parkour). The Field consists of the performers Lucia Gugerli, Pierre Piton and Declan Whitaker. Marisa Godoy and Romain Guion complete the team with various artistic and organisational responsibilities.
