IDaCo nyc – Italian Dance Connection



Art can transform lives, it gives us the power to question, to confront, to explore, and to challenge how we think about the world.                                          Lucy Liu

is innovation 
IDaCo is multidisciplinary
IDaCo is the new (dance) event of NYC
IDaCo is Italian Dance Connection  

We are a group of Italian artists looking to create an inspiring community;  IDaCo nyc, a new and innovative platform, will open a new dialogue between contemporary Dance and Art.
IDaCo nyc is a laboratory for artists who work with an Italian idea, concept or component with the expressiveness of the human body and dance, as well as the power of connections.

Through dance we want to build relationships and offer a supportive, inspiring, creative environment for video artists, photographers, musicians, sculptors: all artists who are working with the “art of movement”.

Through the connection between Dance and other forms of contemporary Art, we will tell stories of our time.

Our Mission
is to connect the Italian choreographers and artists who live or visit New York City, with the local contemporary art scene. We want to encourage networking and artistic research between multiple creative resources of the NYC performing arts. We aim to offer a mainstream artistic platform with the goal to unite, introduce and enrich the Italian community in America, cross cultural boundaries and nurture a sense of global identity.  

What – 12 choreographers and 12 visual and sound artists will show the results of their artistic collaboration; the program will include discussion panels, video screening, dance workshops, site-specific events and performances.

When –  The IDaCo nyc event will take place on May 19th – 23rd, 2015 in NYC at the Italian Cultural Institute, the SHEEN CENTER theater and site-specific locations.

Challenges –  Succeeding will take a lot of dedication and hard work for all artists involved and the organization team. IDaCo nyc is committed to bringing sophisticated, quality performances.  
Organizing and programming the full week event, Choreographing new works, 
Managing dancers in rehearsals, 
Light designing, 
Set design, 
Rehearsal schedule, Program design, 
Filling the theater, Advertising to the community, all these challenges will be faced head on with a positive attitude and pushing forward to create a more progressive, exciting and creative dance event.  

But we Need Your Support  
If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him.                                                             John F. Kennedy
