A performative game inspired from our everyday lives, Tino Sehgal, Christian Boltanski, Lewis Carroll and many more.
After its 2014 avanpremiere, the [Fragile] coproduction by Cosmin Manolescu, with Giselda Ranieri, Tanja Andreeva, Cosmin Manolescu, goes on tour in the frame of E-Motional, and will have its premiere this June in Luxemburg, Cluj, Bucharest and Riga.
Alice in Wonderland’s fans will simply love this piece. Through an experiential proposal that plays with the different layers of distance between the artists and the audience, this performance invites the public to dive into a universe which reveals the fragility and vulnerability of our daily life. [Fragile] is a dance performance, a choreographic installation, a performative game, a party or simply an experience that works with the multiplicity of our identities.
