Gabriela Tudor Foundation presents on November 1, 8 and 9, 2014 in Bucharest the avanpremiere of the [Fragile] performance created by choreographer Cosmin Manolescu. Developed with the participation of dancers Giselda Ranieri (Italy), Tanja Andreeva (Norway) and Cristian Nanculescu (Romania), the performance is a European coproduction created in the frame of the “E-Motional: rethinking dance” programme.
[Fragile] is a heterogeneous piece that proposes to the audience an experiential incursion in a universe both realistic and fictional, which questions the fragility and vulnerability of our daily life. Who we are, what do we like, how much do we pay attention to the others, to their way of being and to their emotional needs, who the world we live in influences us. [Fragile] is a dance performance, a choreographic installation and a performative game at the same time, it works with the multiplicity of our identities and can be seen and experimented both in unconventional spaces, as well as on the stage, in two interconnected parts.
The first part takes place between 17:00-19:00 in a secret location, which shall be revealed only to those who reserve access to it, while the second part takes place between 20:00-21:00 at ZonaD studio on the 1st of November, and respectively at National Dance Centre in Bucharest, on the 8th and 9th of November. The access to the first part is made based on a reservation at firstname.lastname@example.org. Those who reserved have thus secured their seat also to the second part, in the second locations.
