„A vision how we would all move in dance paradise“ (The New York Times)

The mission of the International Festival of Arts & Ideas is to create an internationally renowned festival in New Haven of the highest quality with world-class artists, thinkers and leaders, attracting and engaging a broad and diverse audience celebrating and building community and advancing economic development.

This year’s International Festival of Arts and Ideas in New Haven, now in its 15th year, certainly cannot be accused of a lack of variety.

A creative collaboration of two inventive minds, Ms. Childs and Mr. Glass, on a minimalist masterwork „Dance“ to invent new ways of reframing experience!

The opening-weekend events centered around the multi-genre Dance: „A powerful and entrancing multi-genre collaboration, Dance brings together three minimalist pioneers in a tightly structured dialogue that conveys the elemental desire to move to music. Choreographer Lucinda Childs’ meticulous, unaffected dancing; composer Philip Glass’ mesmerizingly ethereal soundtrack; and an engrossing visual décor and film of the dancers, created by the late conceptual artist and Connecticut native Sol LeWitt, combine to create a gorgeous and historically important experience.“ (New York Times)
