Room for Wonder and Room for Space

LONDON | 2015

IJAD continues to harness the creative power of social media across communities and generations.

Room for Wonder

Room for Wonder is a multi-media contemporary dance piece inspired by the folklore and oral history of migrant communities. The structure is based on stories and creative responses collected through workshops with migrant communities and artists sharing their cultural background. Room For Wonder explores the values and sensitivities of each culture by finding connections between their respective stories and reimagining them in a new light. Taking place in multiple rooms, Room For Wonder is tactile and sense-driven, inviting interaction and inspiring a sense of wonder and otherworldliness.

Room for Space

Room for Space explores scientific understandings of the fundamental structure of the universe in astronomy and geometry and how these intersect with our everyday, subjective experiences of space. IJAD’s signature high-energy ensemble choreography, developed through improvisation, draws the audience effortlessly into another world through their responsiveness to the audience, the tweets and one another. The performances are streamed online and designed to include both virtual and physical audiences, inviting their input via social media and integrating it into the choreography in real time.
