Internationaal Danstheater (ID) is one of the Netherlands’ oldest dance companies. Guided by its rich heritage, ID has recently made a transition to a new repertory. The related focus is on tapping into elements of cultures from around the world as the foundation for creating contemporary dance productions. Choreographers have the opportunity at ID to explore their artistic and creative vision relating to traditions, rituals and diversity and to chrystallise these ideas in a production. ID is committed to leveraging its work to build bridges between cultures and to make audiences receptive to the world of extraordinarily rich and multicoloured traditions and beliefs. ID creates its productions with dancers, choreographers, designers, technicians, office and production employees who come from divers backgrounds and who each inject their own cultural traditions and incluence in a spirit of dialogue. This ensures that ID operates at the heart of society and that contact with the audience serves as the starting point for all its productions and other activities.
Support us on our journey
We need your support in order to build these bridges and to create first-rate productions that make a difference. Support in the form of finances, materials an/or volunteering time are all welcome. With your help we can continue to research sources and connect dance, music, culture and traditions and make this relevant to the world we live in today. We can then continue to create dance productions that feature a storyline and live music. Just as you have become to expect from us.
