INTERNATIONAL DANCE ENCOUNTER AMMAN(IDEA) is a dance encounter of international and local dance performances in Amman, Jordan. It consists of performances, public interventions, master classes, workshops, artist symposium and exchange of ideas. World class choreographers, performance directors and dance-makers join with Jordanian dance artists for a cultural celebration from the period of 22 August to 29 August 2019.
The collaborative trans-disciplinary live performance “Time out of Time: A Special Place” was presented with Brussels-based duet “The Gyre” at 25th of August, 2019.
For young people in Jordan, whose talents lie in performing arts, there is often one major factor that disrupts their ability to create: a massive lack of opportunity, within the educational sector, and within the working field.
In direct response to the needs and wants – such as artistic presentation, education and collaboration – of Jordan’s dance community, INTERNATIONAL DANCE ENCOUNTER AMMAN(IDEA) is born to support and promote independent artists and art projects.
After nearly 30 rehearsals, “Time out of Time: A Special Place” as a dance piece in progress will be presented to Jordanian audience in Al Shams Theater on the forth day of IDEA.
The full cast of ” Time out of Time: A Special Place ” is:
Director/Choreographer: Abd Al Hadi Abunahleh
Assistant Director: Xiaoman Ren
