This year, Barcelona International Dance Exchange (BIDE) will have its satellite event in NEW YORK, USA.
This satellite events is possible thanks to our partnership with Gibney Dance Center, a powerhouse of cultural support for the performing arts community and the City of New York.
Gibney Dance has two remarkable spaces — Gibney Dance: Choreographic Center, at 890 Broadway and Gibney Dance: Agnes Varis Performing Arts Center, at 280 Broadway — that provide a roster of events supporting the creative process, encouraging dialogue, and providing professional development opportunities.
This unique event between BIDE and Gibney Dance offers a space to meet and work together to exchange, develop and create approaches to dance as well as find new inspirations and collaborations for artistic work.
We look forward to gather an international group of 30-40 participants with different backgrounds and experiences, but with the common interest in developing, researching and exchanging ideas in dance. We will offer a structure of daily changing laboratories to support a non-hierarchical atmosphere of meeting and sharing, doing try-outs and showing the work to each other.
Please note that BIDE is a platform for choreographers, dancers, performers, dance teachers, and students of these fields, and we ask the participants to have experience in the field of dance and scenic arts.
We want to offer a space for exchange; there will be no classes in BIDE. The structure is based on the idea of participants offering a special kin of laboratory, that is called B>lab. The first day's laboratories will be lead by artists familiar with the form, and guiding everybody to the way of working. The theme of how to work in labs is an ongoing discussion and a research in the event.
Please fill the application form carefully and do not hesitate to contact us for any questions.
