The Inter-Dance-Project (I.D.P.) is intended to connect different cultures through dance and art. The first part of this project was realized in winter 2014/2015 in Calcutta (India). The idea of combining different types of dance, such as breakdancing as part of hip-hop "sub" culture with classical Indian dance, a millennia-old "primal" culture, proved to be very successful.

In the second part of the project (I.D.P. # 2), five of the Indian dancers will come to Austria to work together with Austrian artists. In March and April 2018 in Linz, we will work on a new dance piece on the topic of integration called "Extegrity".

This contemporary dance piece includes various dance styles between Asia and Europe like classical Indian, dance Breaking, Popping, Waacking Chinese dance,Sufi dance, Serbian Folk dance.

The Dance Performance Extegrity is a multi-faceted exploration of integration, trust, responsibility and authenticity on a personal and societal level.The development of our performance happens in the context of contemporary art and arises through processual work on the topics mentioned above. The different dance styles and related cultures will serve as starting points for working together on a new, cross-disciplinary culture of expression through movement.The stage, divided into two halves, will represent two parts of our society as well as ourselves. On the one hand, those to be integrated (for example, minorities, subcultures), on the other, those who demand integration (the mass). Transferred to our inner self: the site that wants to "belong" and the side that cannot identify with the environment and struggles to stay autonomous.This performance is the mouthpiece for a group of very active young artists of different cultural origins and the realization of their potentials in cooperation and vision development.There will be several performances in Austria and Europe from the end of April to mid-May.
