INVISIBLE CENTRE OF CONTEMPORARY DANCE, Iran

Invisible Centre of Contemporary Dance was launched in 2010 in Iran. It has been formed to centralize activities such as workshops, jam sessions, research, screening dance films and an underground dance festival called UNTIMELY. The main aim of the center is to introduce the term contemporary dance in Iran and to open up possibilities for people who are interested in it. Approximately one thousand people have participated so far in the 114 workshops given by Mohammad Abbasi. None of the activities of ICCD have been announced or promoted so far by the media, instead spread through word of mouth. There are no criteria for participation in the workshops. Everyone, regardless of age, dance skills and physical abilities, can participate in the workshops. There have also been about 30 workshops given by guest teachers from abroad.
