It Will Come Later: A Dance Collaborative Across Five Countries
Why We Recommend it
The first collective dance co-creation by 6 artists from 5 countries examines the concept of transformation from political, physical, spatial and psychological views.
Lee Brummer (Israel), Mui Cheuk-Yin (Hong Kong), Eddie Ladd (United Kingdom, Wales), Joseph Lee (Hong Kong), Weronika Pelczyńska (Austria), and Imre Vass (Hungary) are six professional dancers behind the International Contemporary Dance Collective (iCoDaCo) 2018-2020. iCoDaCo is an international, multicultural and dynamic project. Their latest piece, created in 2018 under the working title transformation, is performed in Hong Kong before being put on in at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2019.
Each artist uses dance as an expression of their fascination with the force of the transforming politics in fast evolving regions such as East Europe and China which triggers a charged exchange amongst them. This is the focal point of an interactive and inclusive operation which aspires to connect with communities and audiences.
The project promotes values such as diversity, tolerance and communality whilst creating a contemporary dance piece influenced by the eclectic artistic and personal heritage of each artist in the collective. iCoDaCo also interrogates collective artistic practices as a microcosm to large scale unions, such as the European Union, through lenses of identity, nationality, individuality, power structures and productivity.
