The Brisbane International Contemporary Dance Prix (BICD Prix) brings the contemporary dance world together by engaging internationally acclaimed directors and contemporary dance professionals who are inspirational leaders in their field to educate and develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of contemporary dance.
