CNDB is launching the RELAY Project

The National Center for Dance (CNDB) together with UNATC I. L. Caragiale-National University of Theater and Cinematography „I.L. Caragiale ”and UNMB – National University of Music Bucharest is kickstarting on February 3rd and 4th the international project #RELAY – Thinking Artistic Material in Music and Dance, carried out within the program # ERASMUS + together with Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln (DE), Den Danske Scenekunstskole (DK) and Sikinnis Dance and Performing Arts Center (GR).

During the first project meeting on Friday, February 4, the local partners are organizing at the CNDB – “Stere Popescu” hall an introductory workshop, guided by university professors Andreea Duță and Cătălin Creţu, with UNATC – choreography section and UNMB students as participants.

The RELAY project will take place over the course of three years (November 2021 – November 2024) and aims at developing existing knowledge structures, contributing to new perspectives in the fields of dance, choreography, music composition and arts education. RELAY came to life from a current approach to contemporary dance, which uses movement to examine the supposed duality of material and immaterial. The project also looks at how dance and music can find common ground in this process of exploration.
