The Dutch Impro Academy, or DIA, was created in 2009 as an initiative of Doek, ICP Orchestra and Bik Bent Braam. Its goal was to offer serious musicians worldwide an opportunity to study, rehearse, and perform with many of the top improvisers from the Dutch impro scene. This year, Eric Boeren, John Dikeman and Wilbert de Joode will be representing Doek as teachers at the academy, along with Han Bennink, Mary Oliver and Ernst Glerum, which will take place August 23-29.
