WHO WE ARE:
Residence I.DRA-Independent DRAma is a place, an idea and a way of producing, organizing and promoting CONTEMPORARY PERFORMING ART.
The Hydra is the mythological animal with seven heads, each of one, if cut, regenerate and triple. This is an image which perfectly fit to our project. As matter of fact I.DRA is a multidisciplinary Residence where different heads try to combine their ideas to find always new way of creation in the name of independent production culture. The strength of will with which the Animal regenerates is the same strength we pool in order to promote innovation and research. In our vision Hydra is not a monster but a challenge to modern world where integration and collaboration are key words to built up a sustainable society.
