The BIDE 2016 theme is: THE REMIX
The use of a theme is meant to support and
amplify the potential of all the fundamental
BIDE lines of work: horizontality, mobility,
The Remix theme is proposed as an artistic
tool, a device for connections, a trigger for
inspiration, a concept for research, a base
for discussion and the starting point for
The Remix is a strategy of musical
composition and innovation. The main
characteristic of a remix is that it appropriates
and changes other materials to create
BIDE is interested in translating this practise
into dance and choreography. A Remix
implies the coexistence of different artists
in the same work.
It is a collaboration that can happen either
with or without direct contact between artists.
It facilitates evolution and development and
it opens up the possibility for a potentially never
ending creative process.
The material to be remixed is up to the artist.
How can we remix a body? A space?
The Remix theme can be the pretext to
enlarge our physical knowledge and it can
also be the gate of access to abstract
perceptions about time and language.
How can we remix a memory?
How can we remix an opinion?
Through the Remix theme BIDE aims to
enlarge the spectrum of creative possibilities
available to us.
The goal is to create a mechanism that
can produce infinite nuances of any possible
element. It is an exercise of welcoming and
acceptance of all the differences that the world
offers us, affirming strongly once again that
dissimilarities can and should be the line of
connection between individuals.
That’s all for this hyper busy april!
Our intention is to create a platform which supports dancers and choreographers to meet each other, exchange and develop material, knowledge and ideas. We offer a place for try-outs, collaborations, laboratories and performances. To create an inspiring and fruitful exchange, we emphasize self-responsibility. Above all, BIDE is set in action, defined and made meaningful by its participants.
