PREMIERE Eszter Salamon "Monument 0.8: Manifestations"
"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.
