Extraterrestrial activity & Dance a playful body >> Tuesday, April 19th, 20h00, Sala Atelier (National Theater Bucharest)

EXTRATERRESTRIAL ACTIVITY

The Greys made contact with a world governmental body for the first time in 1933 in Germany. However, they were turned away by the German government because it had already committed itself to involvement with the Giza intelligence. A renegade group of human extraterrestrials that were headquartered under the Giza plateau in Egypt. They were predominantly Pleadians. They were on their own, doing their own thing. Ashtar, Commigal, and even Jehovah were a part of the group, for some time. They came down here and played God with us.

DANCE A PLAYFUL BODY

<“Dance a playful body” is an experiment for us and a experience for the public.
The piece is a performance that slips through your fingers, about which you feel that you could say something, that you got the idea but in the next second it changes, becomes something else that you can only feel but you can not describe.
Istvan creates or deconstructs his presence without any warning. He doesn’t care about appearance, doesn’t fulfill expectations, he doesn’t obey the rules. His body grows primarily or encodes socially, from one stage to another, and the spectator has to accompany him.> Andreea Novac
