37 MINUTES OF MAKE BELIEVE

October 22nd 2016, 07.30 p.m.

By and with Andreea Novac

 

"Our imagination and our dreams are forever invading our memories and since we are all apt to believe in the reality of our fantasies, we end up transforming our lies into truths. Of course, fantasy and reality are equally personal, and equally felt, so their confusion is a matter of only relative importance".

Luis Buñuel                                                            

 

37 minutes of make believe makes use of movement and spoken word to facilitate the encounter between the performer’s imagination and that of the public. The performance is an interplay between the spoken word and interpretation, between movement and materialization, between what it is and what it might be. The result is a show which is deeply influenced by each spectator’s readiness to perceive, remember and imagine things.

 

This performance is part of the Fondul Colectiv de Creație project, set up by Collective A Association in Cluj in partnership with the National Centre of Dance in Bucharest and financed with the help of the Administration of the National Cultural Fund in 2016.

Fondul Colectiv de Creație is a project of Collective A Association in Cluj, which supports the research, creation and distribution of performance arts shows.
