Drive-by Duet is the result of the artistic residency of Mihaela Dancs and Andreea David in May 2016, in RAP space from the Paintbrush Factory, Cluj. 

How do we relate our movement to music? Do we work with it as if it’s a third body, do we listen to it, are we contaminated by it, do we take it physically and affectively, do we negotiate and compose with it, by building and abandoning relationships, or do we let the movement flow instinctively in that energetic spell that’s specific to music, in which the dance becomes a ritual, a trance, when the music steals us and concepts disappear, when the consciousness is elsewhere and the devil just snucks in.
What kind of dance does the combination of David, Dancs and music produce?

Throughout the presentation we follow the playlist:
1. beginning
2. it's up in the air
3. dramatic scene
4. the other way around
5. emotional party
6. dance with the devil
7. suspense
8. heavy ending

Mihaela Dancs dances in theaters, apartments, art galleries, factories, attics, churches, dance studios and museums from Bucharest, London, Timişoara, Venice, Prague, New York, Vienna, Stockholm, Frankfurt, Cluj or Tokyo. She collaborates with Cătălina Gubandru, Mădălina Dan, Florin Flueras, Paul Dunca, Carmen Coțofană, Vava Ștefănescu, Rui Catalao, Cosmin Manolescu, Zan Yamashita, Doris Uhlich.

She works solo or in collaboration. In 2015, she initiated the Laboratory for Common Practices, a system of work and experiment in which choreographic practices are shared and developed within a group.
