About ACDC- Anderson Carvalho Dance & Choreography
ACDC is an independent, emerging and creation-based contemporary dance foundation from the Netherlands, founded by Brazilian-Dutch choreographer Anderson Carvalho. The foundation is dedicated to artistic creation, research, socio-artistic empowerment, collaboration, innovation and cultural understanding through dance. Its aim is “to offer unique experiences in dance that inspire an open and safe space for co-creation, questioning and dialogue.” Carvalho is thrilled about the inaugural Dance Intersect. The platform will be presented annually in Cape Town and in participating countries such as Netherlands and Brazil. At the core Dance Intersect: A dance company or individual – artist, dancer, or choreographer- is invited to intersect with a different company or dance institution in a three-evening performance, in a different country within a different context.
Four Pillars Concept
ACDC encourages social transformation through cultural exchange between people and countries, by igniting job creation, skills development and transfer through mentoring and collaboration. Carvalho works on the principal of the Four Pillars Concept, that he has developed: Connection; Relation; Creation; Transformation.
