BiMERAS | iDANS
Bimeras was established as the culmination of a decade of research and effort in order to support and promote transnational collaborations in the field of contemporary dance and performance.
Aiming to contribute to the perception of dance as a legitimate and sumptuous artistic and theoretical field, iDANS International Contemporary Dance and Performance Festival brings together the scene’s most challenging artists in Istanbul each year.
The festival, the only of its kind in Turkey and one that competes with its global counterparts, encompasses a wide range of contemporary arts and breaks down the boundaries between visual and performing arts in order to question and expand the notion of “choreography”.
Its supports the endeavour with organizing and implementing discursive activities such as symposiums, publications and workshops, as well as promoting, facilitating, and presenting staged performances and creative interventions.
Before and after it is anything else, Bimeras is a small group of people genuinely committed to what they are doing as persons from within the very field of live arts as artists, theoreticians, and cultural operators.
