LIKE//Public talk - Simona Deaconescu & Farid Fairuz

Camera 0004_Spații Sonice (2017)

Choreographer: Simona Deaconescu

Producer: Tangaj Dance

Coproducer: CNDB

Cofinanced by: the Administration of the National Cultural Fund


The project proposes the collaboration between choreographer Simona Deaconescu, visual artist Ciprian Ciuclea, composer and multimedia artist Cătălin Crețu and the curator Olivia Nițis. The creative team will work with a group of performers on a show and some performative installations, which tackle the subject of depersonalisation and the transfer of information in the post-digital era.


Simona studied both choreography and filmmaking and her aesthetic approach is interdisciplinary, creating projects in which art and science complement each other. In 2014, she was a danceWEB scholar, courtesy of the network Life Long Burning within the ImPulsTanz Festival in Vienna. She's the choreographer of the Tangaj Dance collective, with whom she created the shows "0001_The Dream Factory", "0002_Birdville", "0003_Aftertaste" and the dance movies "Silent Places" and "Sonder". Simona conducts dance composition and technique workshops, as well as classes that combine dance and film. Her shows and workshops have been presented in Bucharest, Craiova, Cluj-Napoca, Iași, Timișoara, Brașov, Budapest, Vienna, Linz, Istanbul and New York. Her dance movies have been selected in over 30 international festivals. In 2016, Simona was awarded with a CNDB prize for her contribution to Romanian contemporary dance by initiating a dance film movement in Romania and organising the "Bucharest International Dance Film Festival".

"We are all lichens" will be a peformative installation that explores in real time the repositioning of the human in the same plane with other forms of existence. Eight human bodies, objects, sounds, materials, plants, textures, light effects and spontaneous reactions mix and launch a spectacular visual delirium. In the attempt to create new possibilities for relating and coexisting without using power and domination, eight performers fluidly experiment between potential complicities, virtual and physical interactions yielding new types of symbiosis. This ensures the possibility of a space in which physical and conceptual boundaries are lost, making room for a new imaginary, which tries to go beyond conditioning and predictability.
