ChampdAction was founded in 1988 by composer Serge Verstockt. An initial purpose of the ensemble was to perform the work of Flemish contemporary composers, which was seldom performed in their native country. Today ChampdAction is an innovative production platform and ensemble for multidisciplinary music projects. Attentive to contemporary tensions between culture, technology and society, it generates and encourages new artistic musical response. It offers a professional open stage where home-made creations engage in dialogue with collaboration projects, from individual musicians to ensembles, and where music interacts with other arts.
ChampdAction is an experimental music and sound laboratory for new music. It researches cross-pollination between art, culture and science.
ChampdAction is in residence at the international arts campus deSingel in Antwerp.
