Under the name FRA (Italian for 'in between'), ICK has been organizing meetings since 2013 where the intuitive body is questioned through provocation and contradiction. Until now, these meetings have been nomadic. From 2022 onwards they will occur regularly at the home of ICK: Space for Dance Art
. The meetings are for a wide audience interested in dance, in movement or simply in the fiction of the body.
This edition of FRA marks the kick-off of the multi-year project ART + CARE which highlights the relationship between art and care. The work of ICK Associate Artist Éric Minh Cuong Castaing is the central focus.
In his choreographic work Éric explores the representation and perception of the human body in the 21st century. In doing so, he interrogates the dualisms of reality and fiction, nature and culture, the organic and artificial. Eric Minh is interested in unique bodies and interpersonal relationships. He works not only with trained dancers, but also with amateurs, people with movement limitations and with (physically challenged) children. Eric Minh's projects are developed in France and the Netherlands, in collaboration with local care institutions, interested individuals and with special education.
