- Ima Iduozee
The work has received international acclaim, touring in 14 countries across the globe. The distinctive approach to movement comes from Iduozee’s background in breaking, contemporary dance and physical theatre. The performer emerges in a space that radiates around him in a very delicate way, reviving our thirst for light, calmness and freedom. Alluring lighting and sound design complete this minimalist world, where the power and grace of the performer captivate our imagination and senses.
“…one of that rare crop of dansers who needs nothing but his fluid physicality and speed to dominate a space.”
“…swift yet languid, soft yet gyroscopic…light, playful and sensitive solo…refreshing.”
