ID this week
Classes and activites from this week
The classes and workshops at the core of the programme, led by internationally renowned artists, place a particular focus on body-based movement exploration as a source for performance, improvisation and composition.
In its new home base, and in collaboration with Siobhan Davies Dance, ID is developing its programme to foster greater international exchange, raise the profile of independent artists’ practice, and embraces opportunities that enable artists to interact with a wider artistic and cultural field and contribute to the growth and evolution of the art form.
