For ICK, the body is curious and groundbreaking, and above all a social body that is sensitive to social changes such as globalisation, digitisation and fragmentation. ICK takes the constant changes as its starting point and uses the body as a window on the world. Through the theme of the Body in Revolt, the choreographers, dancers and researchers connected to ICK make new connections with each other, with themselves (their own body) and with society (other bodies).
Greco and Scholten have made clear which three factors are necessary for ICK in a performance. They combine the underlying train of thought of their own performances in the elements: spectacle - body - miracle. They also recognise these three elements in the work of the choreographers invited and supported by ICK.
Spectacle: the turmoil, disturbance, spectacle and tumult. It is the crack in the canvas, the tilt in the performance. It is the rebellion. The stimulus for the brain.
Body: the frame of reference to give meaning to dance. It is the umbrella term for an artistic investigation into all the possible meanings a body can carry.
Miracle: that which cannot be grasped, the revelation: 'you don't understand it but you feel that it is right'. The mystical. The pure beauty that manifests itself in a space in between.
From 2020, the dreamy rebel Don(na) Quixote will be added to this as an important source of inspiration. His (or her) rücksichtslos (ruthless) idealism will set the tone in all activities.
