Performance | Private Bodies: Performative Installation Mixing Dance, Video and Photography


Influential choreographer and cultural entrepreneur Cosmin Manolescu returns to New York for the American premiere of his newest project,, a performative installation cleverly mixing dance, video and photography to create eerie, haunting effects. Visually striking and based on an original choreographic method, the hybrid show, performed by its author in duo with Cristina Lilienfeld, is a powerful affirmation of what can still make us happy in a life affected by pandemics and wars. The performance will be followed by a round table "Moving Dialogue: Over 25 years of Romanian-American Choreographic Collaboration" with the participation of New York-based choreographer Ursula Eagly, the 2022 recipient of the Gabriela Tudor residency program at the AREAL space in Bucharest.
