International Dance is a dance performance that  attempts to give form to the imaginative experience of a genre. Genres  are never fixed containers, but frames that hold together often disperse  expressions, similar to how viewing and experiencing dance operates.  Genres and framing are integral to experience, without which we tend to  lose ourselves.

The term ‘international’ is a tangle. In this  context, it refers as much to a mode of coming together, as it is posing  questions around whether “international” produces certain forms of  aesthetics. Consider international, independent from nation-states and  their respective socialites. Imagine that international isn’t about  different nations at all, but instead constitutes a terrain wholly of  its own. Not in the sense of international waters with its agreed-upon  rules, , but an environment in which we all are equally lost.

This  dance is composed of swarms of ideas, emerging meetings and pulsations.  It’s a groundless experience to sink into, resonating with embodied  melodies. In this land, movements continue beyond kinetic capacities,  allowing us to be changed through the event of being together. Figures  are produced oscillating between somewhat unknown sensations and  temporary gatherings. Questions arising concerning aesthetic experience  and the cultures through which they emerge. International Dance is a dance that belongs to nobody and where everybody belongs, a remixed space where rhythms overlap and dancing takes place.
