WE ARE THE UK’S FIRST INDEPENDENT ARTIST-LED MULTI-TEACHER DANCE INTENSIVE, PULSING FROM THE HEART OF LONDON. WITH MOVEMENT AS OUR MOTIVATION, WE ARE COMMITTED TO CROSS-BORDER EXCHANGE AND ENGAGEMENT. LIDI AIMS TO CELEBRATE CONTEMPORARY DANCE IN ALL ITS DIVERSE FORMS BY OFFERING DANCERS THE OPPORTUNITY TO MEET HIGH-PROFILE CHOREOGRAPHERS OUTSIDE OF THE TRADITIONAL AUDITION/COMPANY ENVIRONMENT. 

 

TAKING PLACE IN AUGUST, PROFESSIONAL DANCERS WILL ENGAGE IN 44 HOURS OF DANCING WITH 5 CHOREOGRAPHERS WITH A STRONG ARTISTIC PRACTICE AND FORMIDABLE CHOREOGRAPHIC PORTFOLIOS. THE WORKSHOPS ARE DESIGNED TO GIVE THE DANCER A CHANCE TO DEVELOP AS AN ARTIST, AND GIVE A BROAD INSIGHT INTO DIFFERENT WORKING METHODS AND PRACTICES WHICH REFLECT TODAY’S WORKING CONDITIONS. 

 

WE OFFER A DIVERSE MIX OF EVERYTHING CONTEMPORARY DANCE HAS TO OFFER TODAY INCLUDING; IMPROVISATION PRACTICES, MOVEMENT COMPOSITION, REPERTOIRE, SOMATIC RESEARCH, EXPERIMENTAL STATES AND VOICE/TEXT WORK. 

 

THE WORKSHOPS MOVE WITHIN THE FUNCTIONAL, AMONGST THE REVOLUTIONARY, INSIDE OF THE DEVISED AND OUTSIDE OF THE CONSCIOUSNESS; WHILST TRACING THE LIMITS AND TOUCHING THE UNKNOWN.

 

WE AIM TO ACT AS A STRONG BRIDGE BETWEEN THE UK AND OUR EUROPEAN NEIGHBOURS, BY WIDENING AND DEEPENING A COMMUNITY IN WHICH DANCERS CAN CONNECT, SHARE PRACTICE AND CELEBRATE MOVEMENT.
