Iskandar Dance Company is distinguished for its strong and singular aesthetic line and purity of movement drawn from a musical, emotional and human expression. The choreographies delve into the different stages of consciousness expressing points of transition between theatre and movement. The Company works with music and rhythm that are intrinsically connected to the musicality of the body portraying the dance at its core; a cultural tradition reinterpreted as an integrated contemporary expression. Iskandar Dance Company believes dance has the power to transform and brings people to a new awareness of themselves and the world. This is achieved through performance in theatres and unusual spaces. Iskandar Dance Company formed in 2005, is a vibrant company that promotes excellent high quality dance that moves and inspires. The company, led by Artistic Director Alessandro Bascioni, makes exceptional critically acclaimed productions that tour internationally.

The quality of the dancing is like no other - giving a wonderful sense of harmony between costume, dance and music.
