Contemporary Dance Masterclass Gigi Căciuleanu
Monday / Tuesday / Wednesday, 28, 29, 30.03 / 19h00 – 21h00, CNDB, “Stere Popescu” Hall
The master class is designed for one level only and is addressed to both intermediate and advanced students, as it aims to open the movement horizon to those passionate about it. The participants will be introduced to Gigi Căciuleanu’s signature, with an emphasis on the artist’s contemporary dance technique, governed by the playfulness of the body forces and by the study of the course and inclinations of an individual in a “state of dance.” The teaching and artistic research conducted by Gigi Căciuleanu focuses on the ways in which invisible energies are turned into the visible volumes of the body, through “dance vectors”.
