BIDE (Barcelona International Dance Exchange) is an organisation that offers services to movement professionals (choreographers and dancers) and performance from 2007 to the present day. One of BIDE’s objectives is to give value to the movement arts within the contemporary social context. BIDE promotes mobility and exchange between artists of different ages, cultures and backgrounds, and also promotes dialogue between different models, ideologies and realities through transversal participation dynamics. It works with a structure for exchange and creative training in the form of laboratories.
BIDE organizes three types of activities during the year:
1. Lab-meeting, a one-week event held every spring at La Caldera de Les Corts in Barcelona, and Lab-meeting satellite is the same format as the Lab-meeting but is held elsewhere, outside its headquarters and with a duration of three or five days, at the request of the place where it is contracted.
2. Lab-residency, a residency program in collaboration with our partners.
3. Introductory seminars to the work of BIDE laboratories and conferences on artist entrepreneurship networks.
During our stay in Faber, the entire BIDE team will meet to diagnose the project, establish the lines of work and the future of the company, deliberate the business plan on a national and international scale, observe the synergies of the team members and face the period from 2018 to 2020. With this residence, the BIDE team begins a work of accompaniment with Toni González, advisor of cultural projects.
