NID – New Italian Dance Platform is a project aimed at supporting the best Italian dance production.
NID was started in 2012 by a number of institutions in the field of dance distribution, the Ministry of Culture, and several local institutions. It connects Italian dance companies and stakeholders at national and international level, creating a dialogue between production and distribution; thus giving a higher profile to the artistic quality of the Italian scene, respecting the diversity of languages and poetries at the same time.
The next edition will be held in Reggio Emilia from October 10 to 13, 2019.
One of the novelties of this edition will be the Open Studios section, a presentation space for shows that have not yet debuted: an opportunity for artists to develop their research, gather ideas and exchange views with professionals in the sector.
The shows and Open Studios will be selected by an artistic commission composed by Lanfranco Cis, Christophe Galent, Daniele Sepe, Steriani Tsintziloni, Gerarda Ventura and Catherine J. Wang.
