Kampana, originally from Sanskrit “that which has vibrations” is the IDF’s laboratorium (wadah) which offers artists quality time and space to develop their artistic research. The participating artists are chosen to undergo a creative process and span out to diverse choreographic practices, ideas and sociocultural contexts.
Kampana culminates in either a work in progress presentation or a performance within the framework of IDF. In an intimate setting, Kampana supports the artists in developing ideas and creation processes based on research, dialogue, discourses, experimentation and knowledge being shared between peers in the collective process guided by curators and mentors.
Kampana participants are in the early stage of their practice in contemporary dance. Participants may come from various artistic backgrounds, and there are no age limitations.
