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 five years? In 10 years? 

In five 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.
