The article offers information about the International Dance Exchange of Amsterdam (IDEA) which was started in 1991 by Christina Svane and Pauline de Groot at Pauline's Studio de Koe in the Netherlands. It has been recognized as an interactive and supportive context for new performance pieces. It shared common ground with Mary Ramsay's Authentic Movement orientation since it was based on the contemplative principle of witnessing one's own experience.
