Artist Talk: Alida Dors
A look behind the scenes and conversation with the makers form an interesting contribution to your visit of a performance. Therefore, ITA Academy continues the a series of Artist Talks: in-depth discussions with inspiring makers about their work and working methods, motives, sources of inspiration and fascinations.
Artist Talks take place before or after a performance by the artist in question and offer an in-depth look at the work in a broader context.
Runtime 60 minutes, after the performance

In this first Artist Talk of the season, moderator Carolien Borgers talks to Alida Dors, after the performancePrimisi.
Alida Dors, theatre maker and choreographer, embodies, among other things, the principles from hip-hop culture: learning by doing, crew mentality and each one teach one. They resonate in all Alida's work, because with her, every team is polyphonic. With each crew member's individuality, with text, with music, and a powerful, rich dance language, one and one is at least three in Alida's work. She has been an artistic director at Theater Rotterdam since 2020, and has been shaping the artistic direction of the TR makers house ever since.
-|-In a one-hour conversation, we will discuss her oeuvre, working methods, fascinations and wishes for the future and reflect together on the theatre landscape and the role Dors plays.
Before the Artist Talk, the performance Primisi will be shown, but you are also welcome to join the Artist Talk only.
