Barcelona International Dance Exchange (BIDE) is a platform for networking and exchange for dancers, choreographers and performers. We provide a space for artists to meet and work together, to research and develop material, to do tryouts and perform, and to find new inspirations and collaborations for artistic work. BIDE hosts one annual event each spring in Barcelona, plus satellite events and artists residencies throughout the summer in Europe. Applicants for BIDE should have professional experience and a strong interest in contemporary dance.
