ilDance is an international and independent contemporary dance organisation which initiates and operates numerous pioneer and international projects. The organisation was founded in 2012 by its current directors, Israel Aloni and Lee Brummer and it is based in Gothenburg, Sweden. One of ilDance’s flagship projects is our project based junior company, ilYoung.
ilYoung was established in 2013 with the ambition to create a context which would offer professional experience in contemporary dance practice, creation, production and performance to young dancers while they are still in their education/training journey.
Every year ilDance holds auditions across Sweden and in Australia from which a total of ten dancers are invited to join the full time creation process of 6 weeks.
During the creation process, the junior company members work with the directors of ilDance as well as international guest choreographers & teachers. The creation process is hosted in residencies across Sweden where the cast, choreographers and the creative team interact and engage with the local community in various satellite activities. Following the creation period, ilYoung tours with the new production across Sweden.
The cast members are mentored by the directors of ilDance throughout the project and after, with the goal to help pave each of the young artist’s individual path towards the practice and career and that they desirably aspire to.
2019 Will be the 7th year of the ilYoung project.
