A CNDB 2021 production has been selected in the international program Aerowaves Twenty22! The performance that got selected is Coreomaniacii, concept and choreography by Simona Deaconescu, which was created together with the students of the CNDB Academy of Dance and Performance.
Choreomaniacs is a performative docu-fiction, chronologically following the events that marked the “dance epidemy” in the summer of 1518, in Strasbourg – a mass dystopian manifestation, which affected several hundred people. The show discusses the way we choose to look at dance, starting from a series of testimonials from the scholars of the period, a mix of pseudoscience, theology and medieval science-fiction, in contemporary movements. The focus is on the way the epidemic spread was documented, the events being told from the point of view of the watcher, never from the point of view of the one who lived them.Simona Deaconescu
