Indonesian Dance Festival

Indonesian Dance Festival (IDF), established in 1992, acts as a laboratory within Indonesia’s contemporary dance ecosystem. 

The biennial festival provides space for local choreographers to develop their potentials, and facilitate their encounters with global dance figures. IDF has organised over 270 performances, involved over 330 choreographers, and produced 43 commissioned and reconstruction works. As the longest-running festival in Southeast Asia, IDF has collaborated with local and international curators and a wide range of dance communities in different countries. With a vision to make dance as part of daily life, IDF organises a wide range of festival programmes that are accessible to the public.
