For the second year in a row, guests from Greece and the rest of Europe discuss, inform, and educate individuals both with and without disabilities regarding the limitless possibilities and accessibility of contemporary dance.
iDance #2, an outward-looking, interactive conference that overturns stereotypes and proposes innovative methods, once again uses the platform of the Onassis Stegi as a jumping-off point, to send dancers with disabilities soaring, physically and spiritually.
In collaboration with three European actors—the Dutch Holland Dance Festival, the Swedish Skånes Dansteater and the British Stopgap Dance Company—and in the presence of specialists from Greece and abroad, this year’s lineup aims to promote, both in theory and in practice, progressive ideas about the how disabled individuals hone certain skills as well as their access to the art of dance and, by extension, to culture itself. Invited guests include artists, researchers, social activists, students and professionals from the cultural sphere, from Greece and abroad, while the programme gives individuals the opportunity to learn new techniques and choreographies of inclusive dance, under the tutelage of important teachers and organizations.
