inQUAD is IDP’s original performance series featuring the work of emerging female choreographers. Loosely inspired by Samuel Beckett’s play “Quad” (in which four figures, both seemingly alike and different, utilize unique spatial patterns and individual movement trajectories to explore their stage space), this performance series brings together four artists who share similar creative theories but showcase uniquely different styles. Each choreographer’s distinct virtuosity and singular exhibition give way to a dynamic showcase of innovative and contemporary dance.
The mission of inQuad is:
- To meet, network, and develop relationships with other emerging female choreographers and to support participating artists’ ongoing success in their own work through new connections.
- To provide participating artists with guidance, resources, and hands-on experience in show production so that they may have the tools and knowledge to self-produce their own work in the future.
- To give participating artists the proper allotment, show documentation, compensation, and audience-sharing that every production and split-bill should have. This includes ticket sales, video, photos, reviews, and audience reception.
