„A truth, a lie and a list of possibilities”

„At the moment we see something beautiful, we undergo a radical decentering. Beauty lifts us, letting the ground rotate beneath us several inches, so that when we land, we find we are standing in a different relation to the world than we were a moment before”. Elaine Scarry


A truth, a lie and a list of possibilities is the first performance from the trilogy Beauty – Disgust – Utopia, in which choreographer Andreea Novac turns her attention to beauty, understood as a communication experience or as an act of discovery, bare of esthetical promises.


„I don’t treat beauty as an object or as an esthetical quality, but more like a specific interaction between the spectator and the performer, which implies a transfer of power, a transformative experience, always unstable, enthralling and releasing at the same time, a reason for which, often, gives us lots of trouble”. Andreea Novac


A truth, a lie and a list of possibilities will premiere on September 21st at the National  Centre for Dance Bucharest and will be accompanied, in September and October, by 4 theoretical conferences on the theme of beauty from the sociological, philosophical, fashion design and image perspectives.
