Nidal ABDO
Dancer and choreographer

Nidal received a creation grant in partnership with the Atelier des Artistes en Exil. 

What is your artistic background ?
I grew up in a household where we listened to music all day long. My mother is a pianist and that has certainly guided me to learn dancing and to make the choice to become a choreographer. 

How do you see your profession today ? 
My profession is an artistic way to express my feelings, to pass on different kinds of messages and to share my knowledge. 

How do you see yourself in 5 years ? In 10 years ? 
In 5 years, I see my dance collective growing, presenting my shows all over the world and sharing this with more international audiences. I would also like to be more in touch with the dance communities in Europe and around the world. In 10 years, I hope to have my own dance school, preparing children and teaching them several dance disciplines.
