I will give you a brief insight on the programme and also tell you about the chance to join us in Polverigi as professional.
See you in Porto!
I am the founder and artistic director of Effetto Larsen, an art practice based in Milan, Italy. We create site-specific and participatory performances at international level, and we're working on our new creation: After/Dopo, a project about what remains when we pass away. At Newsround I'll talk about where we are now, what we would like to develop, and to what kind of collaborations we are open.
I'll introduce you to our new umbrella programme, Livin' the city, which includes a handful of projects aiming to bring locals closer to each other and to their cities by delivering artistic actions to public spaces. Below you'll find a short video on our former project, Szabihíd, that gave us the inspiration to set up a long-term programme with similar objectives, for which we would be happy to find partners from among you.
Unlimited commission art from disabled artists across all art forms and we are holding an international symposium in September this year. We need your help to identify speakers and others – artists, producers, promoters, venues, policy makers – those linked to arts and disability and those not. We have 4 topics: Art: How can disabled artists change the ‘mainstream’ arts sector?; Equality: Disability, intersectional identities and the arts; Attitude: Why is it taking so long? Will we ever get there?; Future: Does new technology enable, or create more barriers? Presented by Jo Verrent, senior producer, Unlimited
On Friday the 27th of April, ilDance will present iCoDaCo - International Contemporary Dance Collective at the Existing Members Newsround.
iCoDaCo is a is a biennial artist led project initiated by Sweden based company, ilDance. In each cycle of iCoDaCo, a new production is created by a collective of international artists who gather to venture in a multilayered collaboration.
The first iCoDaCo took place in 2012 and the project has been organically moulding and reforming ever since.
The research and creation processes manifest in a process which is designed by a unique production model that we have developed throughout the years.
iCoDaCo was initiated to facilitate a rare opportunity for artists from different countries to genuinely collaborate, using their art form as a mean and medium. ilDance ignited iCoDaCo in order to demonstrate a microcosms where individuals find common ground and are willing to jointly create and evolve. We, at ilDance, felt the need to offer a genuine opportunity for the manifestation of co-creation, collaboration and support of people who come from diverse backgrounds and are willing to take the time and make the effort to find meeting points with those who are different to them.
In iCoDaCo 2018-2020 Lee Brummer (Sweden), Eddie Ladd (Wales), Weronika Pelczynska (Poland), Imre Vass (Hungary) and Mui Cheuk Yin and Joseph Lee (Hong Kong) will co-create a piece which interrogates the notion of transformation from a transversal view points.
iCoDaCo 2018 - 2020 is produced by Nowohuckie Centrum Kultury (Poland), Gwyn Emberton Dance (Wales), Jacqueline Sintung Wong (independent producer - Hong Kong) & SÍN Arts and Culture Centre (Hungary)
We are now waiting for the results from a Creative Europe application that we have submitted, to support the 2018-2020 cycle of the project.
We are looking for partners who are interested in hosting iCoDaCo to present the new work and the working model in their communities.
Also, we are now starting to create long term partnerships with organisations (production offices, production houses, venues, facilitation organisations) in Europe and elsewhere who would like to become part of iCoDaCo and support artists from their geographic locations to join future cycles of iCoDaCo.
Joining the iCoDaCo flow already now will give the new partners a great opportunity to observe and mildly participate in the 2018-2020 cycle whilst they develop the content and context for the following cycle together with ilDance.
I am visual artist and together with Andrés Beladiez, stage director, we run a joint project “zoomwooz”, hybrid in nature which we have been running fro 6 years now. We create multimedia performances and installations that span over multiple artistic disciplines, such as comic, animation, theater, cinema and digital arts…
Here in the newsround I want to talk about how we got where we are now, from nothing to touring half the world and the challenges we face as a two (wo)-men show, which connections and collaborations we are looking to make.
The Work Room from Glasgow, Scotland will present at the newsround on Friday about In Motion, our new ons our new online screen dance resource. We have been commissioned by digital arts platform The Space to produce a short series showcasing independent dance artists making work for screen in Scotland.
We are interested in connecting with organisations internationally who supporting screendance and choreographic work that is being distributed digitally. We are keen to make connections to learn from other's experience and find collaborators as we move forward from our initial pilot project and our wider support for dance artists creating work for screen .
