International Dance Dialogues (IDD)
Created and Curated by Janet Panetta

International Dance Dialogues (IDD) is a program designed to address the need for New York’s developing dance artists to have meaningful interchange with their counterparts and potential mentors from Eastern and Western Europe. While New York artists are able to see the performances of larger companies like Pina Bausch’s Tanztheater Wuppertal, our artists are rarely able to interact with the creators and performers from these companies in an intimate setting. In addition, lesser-known yet prize-winning and critically-acclaimed European artists do not come to New York to perform due to lack of name recognition, funding and suitable venues; again, access to these artists is very rare for New York dancers and choreographers. IDD provides a venue where substantive professional exchange and even friendships develop, so that significant and often ongoing connections are created.
IDD classes and workshops are listed below, and are also listed on our classes and workshops calendar and description pages.

The human body and how we ‘speak’ with it can be extremely direct and equivocal. After 20 years as dancers, Mark Lorimer and Cynthia Loemij (both instrumental collaborators with Rosas/Anne-Teresa De Keersmaeker) are beginning work on a duet that explores communication and intimacy with a focus on music. In this week-long workshop, Mark Lorimer will be opening up the process to include the group to develop their own improvisational and written material. What can dance specifically express about experience? What creates intimacy, successful communication, effective speaking and real listening? And how do we fail to connect?

Mark Lorimer graduated from LCDS, London, in 1991 and has worked with a.o. Rosas/Anne-Teresa De Keersmaeker (on and off since 1994), ZOO/Thomas Hauert, Deborah Hay (The Match), Jonathan Burrows and The Featherstonehaughs. He has taught at ImpulsTanz, PARTS, the Laban Centre, LCDS and International Dance Dialogues at Panetta Movement Center.

Movement Research and IDD launched a partnership in 2011. More IDD workshops will take place throughout 2011. Please check our website and email announcements for future programming.
