IDACO nyc 2018 - Call for International Choreographers & Artists


           IDACO nyc 2018 (May 21st - 27th) 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.  


          IDACO nyc 2018 / INTER ZONE – EU Junction 

          Junction refers to a place where multiple things or people meet, a zone between territories.


           This year IDACO will focus on the ideas of intersection and junction, with particular attention to the diversity and dialogue between European     

           countries. As new barriers and walls emerge, IDACO nyc would like to raise interest toward the importance of meeting, joining and overcoming distances.

           This effort may lead to a zone in between, a shared space held for artists of different nations to come close to one another.
