curated by NOD – New Dance Workshop
ICD NOD International Contemporary Dance Program offers teachers from leading European and international companies, exploring the most important current contemporary repertoires including Batsheva, Sharon Eyal, Hofesh Shechter, Crystal Pite, Imbal Pinto and Avshalom Pollack, Idan Sharabi etc. Students have the opportunity to investigate different movements in intensive sessions with the best freelance and non-freelance dancers and choreographers of the international scene. NOD is not an academy, therefore its goal is to offer dancers the possibility to grow as artists, as well as people, having the opportunity to be within an international group contaminating themselves artistically and humanly.
SQUEEZE. From fleeting encounters to lasting friendships, it’s always more exciting to engage with those around you than to be completely alone. Dance is no exception, at least if we leave aside the undoubtedly enriching but nonetheless lonely transcendental experiences at a rave and turn instead to the peculiarities of choreographic systems and crowd-pleasing performances. Technical virtuosity is retrograde, community is the new black. A shy smile, a cheeky squeeze, a multitude of beginnings.
