“In ‘Coregrafie de grup’, the choreography is generated almost in real time. The dancers, engaged in intense physical exercises, negotiate from forms and rhythm towards space and time, offering to the public musical and visual, kinesthetic, energetic and emotional experiences. Being in control and losing it, balancing knowing with not knowing, listening intently or totally isolated, moving bodies say everything and nothing.” (Mihaela Dancs)

“The dancers listen to each other and imagine together. They meet/support each other in exhaustion and energy in order to generate different modes of being together/staying together and propose different ways of being together in order to continuously generate movement and to put something else into action, bigger than the sum of its parts. The exhaustion is the perfect invisible partner, individual and common, and the energy transcends the domain of the stage, tying everybody together with unexpected invisible strings.” (Adriana Gheorghe)

“An exercise of artistic bravery by Mihaela Dancs and the 10 performers, which creates an aesthetic all of its own, surprising through simplicity, endurance and excellence, of an intensity and quality of detail rarely attained in the performative space.” (Vava Ștefănescu)


Mihaela Dancs (born in 1974, in Bucharest, Romania) dances in theatre halls, apartments, attics, art galleries, factories, churches and dance studios in Bucharest, London, Timişoara, Venice, Prague, New York, Cluj, Vienna, Stockholm or Tokyo. Among others, she collaborates with Cătălina Gubandru, Mădălina Dan, Carmen Coțofană, Paul Dunca, Vava Ștefănescu, Rui Catalao, Cosmin Manolescu, Doris Uhlich and Zan Yamashita. For some years now, she has dedicated herself to surfing with the same amount of passion she pours into dance. Most likely, the two will converge at some point, if they haven’t already.
