The artists in iCoDaCo 2018-2020 are working on a new piece called TRANSFORMATION (Working title). In this work, the collective examines the concept of transformation from political, physical, spatial and psychological views. At its core, six artists from five countries create their first collective co-creation together.
Each artist brings a unique fascination with the force of transformation. The transforming politics in regions such as East Europe and China trigger a charged exchange amongst these artists.
This is the focal point of an interactive and inclusive operation which aspires to connect with communities and audiences.
The project promotes values such as diversity, tolerance and communality whilst creating a fresh contemporary dance piece that is influenced by the eclectic artistic and personal heritage of each artist in the collective.
iCoDaCo also interrogates collective artistic practices as a microcosm to large scale unions, such as the European Union, through lenses of identity, nationality, individuality, power structures and productivity.
