The IDACO nyc 2017 Application Call for Choreographers & Artists is currently closed if you are still interested to apply contact us at          


           IDACO nyc 2017 (May 30th, June 4th) is interested in  works of choreographers & artists, whose artistic idea or

        concept relate to Italian culture, regardless of their nationality


           IDACO’s mission is to connect Italian and international 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 the multiple creative resources of NYC performing arts. IDACO will build relationships and offer

           a supportive, inspiring, creative environment for visual & video artists, musicians, sculptors, photographers, and all artists who are working with the "art

           of  movement".


           IDACO celebrates contemporary movement-based performance, through the striking contribution of Italian and international artists. This year,

           IDACO will present projects that relate to the theme “TransformAction”.


TransformAction, the act of making art in response to alteration, substitution, ongoing changes that define the circumstances of our lives. The actuality of becoming different drives our actions. Movement lives where being and action meet, bringing together our inborn perception, with intuition, potential, discovery and ongoing co-creation.
