The ICK Academy investigates the value of dance in society. The research projects lead to performances, installations and films. We share our knowledge and methods with schools and children, the public and with other dance companies, in productions and workshops. Starting in 2021, Vietnamese/French visual artist and choreographer Eric Minh Cuong Castaing will join ICK as an Artist Associate.
The ICK-Academy is curious, challenges the status quo of dance, questions dance and archives the memory of the dance because Where does dance rest when it has been performed?
The research at the ICK Academy is inspired by the practice of our choreographers. The results have an effect on their own makeup, but also on the dancers and the audience. Think of talent development and educational projects about the expressiveness of the body for young and old.
