The Italian Dance Connection (IDACO nyc), the contemporary dance festival led by Vanessa Tamburi, is back on the New York scene from May 30. The third festival will involve more than 25 dance companies, artists and directors. Round tables will be held during the week of the festival with off-site dance exhibitions at the Italian American Museum, along with the opening event at the Italian Cultural Institute. IDACO nyc, founded by Vanessa Tamburi and Enzo Celli, is run and produced by Flusso dance project in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute and the Baruch Performing Arts Center. This year it focuses on the theme “TransformAction”, drawing attention to artistic responses to changes on a personal, social and political level. The organisers stressed that our lives are defined by circumstances that always change, constant transformations that occur at personal, social and political level. The act of making art is a response to this alteration, substitution. The actuality of becoming different drives our actions. The Italian Dance Connection is a platform for Italian artists visiting and living in New York, and for New York artists who want to engage with Italian culture, to explore and share their unique paths through movement and choreographic language, as well as visual arts.
