Dedublarea >> Tuesday, March 9th, 19.00h, Round Hall<"Dedublarea” is my graduation piece. I've tried to question the utility, accessibility and intelligibly of dance, to approach its problematics with irony and detachment. This distance has allowed me to talk about choreographic issues from the inside without being sucked into them. I've placed myself lucidly in the middle of quotation, clichés, reference, stereotypes. I've transformed poor examples of choreographic conventions and rules in good and usable material, and this process has become a source of inspiration. What has come out of it is avoiding issues, dissimulation, hiding a true identity.">
