PREMIERE Eszter Salamon – Monument 0.8: Manifestations

PREMIERE Eszter Salamon – Monument 0.8: Manifestations

In the frame of the Creative Crossroad activity, Eszter Salamon was selected by 4Culture to receive a 2 years structural support by the LLB network to work amongst others on her latest production "MONUMENT 0.8: Manifestations"

This support includes a co-production support by 4Culture, a residency opportunity with danceWEB and MDT and a presentation possibility at STUK. 


"Manifestations" is a choral performance built on the concept and practice of ‘embodiment’ and transformation of images, texts and sounds. Between sensation and memory, this emancipatory remembrance animates a collage of heterogeneous histories by interweaving traces of the history of Romanian feminism, artistic gestures of the historical avant-garde and musical memories of the past in traditional songs. Between screens and projected images, five dancers create an emotional space where life and art intertwine; it is both a feminist manifestation and an intimate choreography.
