I SAW IT AT CNDB
Performance reviews by the public #IsawitatCNDB
DREAM, DARE, WRITE
If the dance artist or choreographer dreams, dares, and dances, then the spectator sees, thinks, and writes down. Our aim is to encourage you to write about the contemporary dance performances that you attended at the National Centre of Dance in Bucharest (CNDB). Participate, get involved, write us about the emotions the show has stirred in you, the memories it brought to light, the dreams it awoke in you, the moments when it made you take off. Write us if you feel the need to, if you have the time and chance to let your imagination run free.
We’re launching this contest at the Regional Choreography Biennale Re//Dance, but you can write about any performance that you’ve attended to at CNDB from October 1st to December 1st 2016.
The reviews must be published online or in print, or else broadcasted at radio/TV or online, individually or in the media, until December 1st 2016 and then entered into competition by emailing at email@example.com. Prizes will be handed out at the #CNDBAwards2016 ceremony.
